    Hi ! It keeps saying “14th and 15th Street” for the entrance gate . . . .(or is it 15th and 16h ?) but where EXACTLY do we go, to find the entrance to drop zone beach and to get our wrist – bands ???

  2. Diane Kyle says:

    Hi ! we bought 4 adult tickets, and my kids are 3 and 5 . . . . since they’re free, do you have a “free” ticket that I need to bring with them on that Sunday ? for their admittance ?

  3. Phyllis Crane says:

    If I have tickets for the drop zone, do I still need to be there at 9 AM to get a good spot on the beach? Just how crowded would it be if I showed up at 11 AM?

    • OC Air Show says:

      It does get pretty crowded by 11, so we recommend getting there between 9 and 10:30 for optimal umbrella placement!

    • OC Air Show says:

      It depends on what you like! The Flight Line Club is GREAT if you want the sun, the sand, the water, and no hassles because we provide the food, the shade, the beverages, etc. However, if you are not a big beach person, the Skybox or Penthouse can also be a really great experience because you have such a great view of the show. Our Drop Zone is general admission, so it’s no frills, but a lot of fun!

  4. Dan says:

    Website is saying coolers, food and water can be brought in however printed on the back of the tickets is the following: because of security reasons no coolers ate allowed and one sealed bottle of water can be brought in per person. Which one is correct. Thank you.

  5. Vincent Latchford says:

    Can you access the beach and swimming from the drop zone? IS there a swimming beach near the drop zone? Can you exit and reenter the drop zone?

    • OC Air Show says:

      Yes, there is a gate at the oceanfront of the Drop Zone that allows access in and out of the waterfront only for the ticket holders!

  6. amber says:

    I see there is a fence around the area, but my kids like to run to and from the water, is the whole area fenced in? could we just sit close to the area (like on the free part of the beach), and just use our wristbands to use the facilities?

    • OC Air Show says:

      There is waterfront access at the bottom of the Drop Zone area, so your kids can access the water.

    • OC Air Show says:

      We do not provide parking or transportation to the boardwalk, but there are many places around Ocean City that will charge for parking for the day during the show.

  7. Cori says:

    How crowded is the Drop Zone? Are you able to walk around pretty easy? Also, what happens if it rains? Are we out our ticket cost?

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Cori, the Drop Zone is pretty busy, but we do limit ticket sales so that it doesn’t get overcrowded. Tickets are non-refundable, but if the show is completely cancelled because of rain, we honor the tickets the next day or next year. Typically everything can fly rain or shine though!!

    • OC Air Show says:

      The day before the event – we do a tiered discount so that the earlier buy, the more you save!

  8. Kay says:

    Can we bring our own umbrella, cooler, chairs etc. into the drop zone? What time does the drop zone open? Can you come and go?

    • OC Air Show says:

      Yes, cooler, chair, umbrella is fine! No alcoholic beverages and no awnings though. Drop Zone opens at 9 am, and you will receive a wristband so you can come and go as you please.

    • OC Air Show says:

      The Drop Zone and Flight Line Club areas are all on the sand, so we recommend handicap guests give themselves a bit of extra time to get to their destination.
