No. The Easter Eggstravaganza does not sell out. Easter egg hunts for specific times may sell out. All Easter Eggstravaganza activities are open throughout the day. If you plan on visiting the Easter Eggstravaganza on Good Friday and the Saturday before Easter, we strongly suggest that you plan to arrive as soon as we open on that day to avoid crowds. Irvine Regional Park is extremely busy during this time of the year and the park may close until parking again becomes available. If the parking lot is full, the County of Orange will close the front gate and will not permit any additional cars to enter. Additional parking is available at Santiago Canyon College; it is approximately a one mile walk from this parking lot to the park entrance. The Santiago Canyon College parking lot and costs are not set, managed, and/or controlled by Irvine Regional Park and/or Irvine Park Railroad.
Children can participate in Easter Egg hunts based on their age; there are different egg hunts by age group. Tickets for Easter egg hunts can be purchased in person on the day you visit the Easter Eggstravaganza at either the train station or yellow shack. Once you purchase your Easter egg hunt tickets, you must then take the tickets to the “wristband booth” (located in front of the Easter egg hunt entrance) where you will exchange your ticket for the time that your child will participate in an Easter egg hunt. We strongly suggest that you obtain your wristbands as soon as you purchase your tickets; if a specific Easter egg hunt time is sold out, you will need to select a different time.
Easter egg hunts are for children 2-12 years of age only. If your child is almost two years old and fully capable of picking up eggs on his/her own, you may purchase a ticket for them and they can participate. Adults are NOT allowed to pick Easter eggs up. Adults are welcome to walk alongside their child to take photos.
