How is Gem membership different than the previous annual pass offering?

We’re glad you asked! The Gem membership is the upgrade that all Rock City guests want. With special offers, such as no standing in the ticket line, no time reservation (even for the Enchanted Garden of Lights and SOLD OUT nights!), an annual gift given at the time of registration or renewal, special discounts on food and drinks through the park and so much more!

How do I renew my Gem Membership?

We appreciate all our members and have made the renewal process easy! You can renew either online or in person, at the ticket desk or Cornerstone Giftshop. You’ll receive a reminder email before your expiration date.

Can I upgrade my one-day ticket to a Gem Membership?

Yes, you can upgrade your ticket to a Gem Membership. Ask our partners for more information during your visit!

How will I receive my Gem Membership card and Welcome pack?

Members who purchased a membership online will be given two options during the checkout process: 

  1. My first visit is in less than 14 days. I will pick up my Gem Membership Gift and Welcome Pack at the Cornerstone Giftshop next to Starbucks.
  2. My first visit is in more than 14 days. Please ship my Gem Membership Gift and Welcome Pack to the address on my account.
