The Sand Boxes feature your own reserved beach area where you can relax and enjoy the OC Air Show with your family or friends knowing you’ll be separated from other spectators. Sand Boxes accommodate up to 4 people and include beach chairs and an umbrella so you can leave all your stuff at home.

The Sand Boxes are a perfect way for families with young children, the elderly, or at risk to enjoy the OC Air Show worry-free. If you have a larger group, you can reserve two Sand Boxes side-by-side. Food and beverage stands, portable restrooms and hand sanitizing stations are provided exclusively for the Sand Boxes in ample quantity to insure separation from others.

 

Sand Boxes are no longer available for 2020.  Only VIP Penthouse and VIP Skybox are still available for this year.  If you would like to receive a notification when the Sand Boxes go on sale for 2021 event please enter your info below.

    Will we be close enough to the drop zone that we’ll be able to hear the narration and music from the sandboxes?

  2. Gretchen says:

    HI -Do SandBox reservations include umbrellas and 4 chairs. Or, do we have to rent them separately. If so, do we reserve them in advance or day of? Or, can we bring our own?
    Thanks!

  3. Vincent E Reaver Jr says:

    I am staying at the Holiday Inn on 17th, do the sand boxes sit in front of the hotel or am I free to set my own tent up?

    Trying to figure out where I can set up shop or if I need to rent a sand box.

    Thanks,

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Vincent, the beach from 15th Street north to just past 17th will be reserved for ticketed guests only, so I’d recommend reserving a sandbox if that’s an option that you’d like near to your hotel.

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Bob, you can see the image above for a depiction of the sandboxes – they comfortably fit up to 4 adults and are spaced together in groups with walking paths in between. They will be marked clearly with stakes and tape to ensure everyone knows where they need to stay.

  4. Frankie B says:

    What is the distance between the sand boxes? Several people have asked about the size of the sandbox and you have not provided a definitive answer. What is the size of each sandbox? Thank you for answering the questions.

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Meridel, so the reserved spots are only for Flight Line Club, Penthouse and Skybox ticketholders, and are located primarily on the side streets around the boardwalk near to the show site. They are generally sent out about a week prior to the show.

  5. Colleen says:

    I’m not sure if this is posted anywhere, but did not see it. Can you bring a cooler with your own food and beverages into the sandbox area?

  6. Beth Welch says:

    Good day, We reserved Drop Zone tickets for the June show. Are we able to upgrade (pay a difference) to Sand Box?

  7. Lisa Smith says:

    We are a family of five, if I purchase a sand box, do I also need to purchase one additional ticket?

    • OC Air Show says:

      Editing to clarify. Sandboxes fit up to four adults and come with four tickets. We are allowing guests who have an additional fifth person under the age of 12 (so example, a mom, a dad, three kids) to purchase another single children’s ticket directly through our box office by telephone 877.301.8499. However, more than 4 adults or teenagers over the age of 12 will need to purchase more than one sandbox.

  8. Jennette says:

    I see that the sand boxes read as available for 4 people. Can 2 adults with 3 children, age 5 and under, reserve 1 box? Thank you.

  9. Nanette says:

    where is the sand box located in relation to the drop zone and the flight line club? The event site map doesn’t show the Sand Box

    • OC Air Show says:

      It is located between the Drop Zone and the Parachute Landing Area. The Flight Line Club is on the other side of the Parachute Landing Area

  10. Theresa says:

    As far as the “Sand Boxes” are concerned.. why is it that no one has purchased any of the front row sections? EX: G9 ?

    • OC Air Show says:

      We opened an additional row, but all the views are good because you are looking up in the sky! 😉

  11. Theresa says:

    I read where someone had asked if the show is cancelled due to weather, if $ is returned. The response was “no, tickets are non-refundable, but tickets can be honored for Sunday’s show”, how is this possible, if tickets are sold for Sunday’s show?

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Theresa, so that’s only a portion of our rain policy. Our show is rain or shine. If for some reason the entirety of the show is cancelled due to weather that makes our pilots unable to fly, Saturday tickets are honored on Sunday. If the entirety of the show is cancelled due to weather on Sunday, we generally honor the tickets for next year’s show. However, in the history of this show, neither has ever happened, thankfully.

    • OC Air Show says:

      We’ll definitely pass along the suggestion to our artist to add it! It’s near the Drop Zone Beach, but will be physically separated.

  12. Munehiro Mitsuzuka says:

    Hi, I just purchased the Sand Box. In the site map, where is it located? Is a part of Drop Zone converted to Sand Box? I think it would be helpful to post an updated “Site Map” showing where Sand Box area is. Thank you!

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Munehiro, I’ll pass that suggestion along to our artist, but YES, the Sand Boxes will be in the same area (but separated physically) from the Drop Zone.

    • OC Air Show says:

      General parking we recommend that you use the West OC Park and Ride. VIP areas include an assigned parking spot.

    So so glad this summer event will happen! We’ve been coming out to see this for years…
    Nothing more patriotic than spending the afternoon supporting our military and enjoying our bravest and brightest doing what they do best!
    I have a question about the sandboxes, We have 3 adults and two small children (5 and 2). Would one sandbox suffice?

    • OC Air Show says:

      Hey Jesus, so there will be wooden stakes with marking tape around them for each box. It’s a visual barrier, but not sure if that works for your son!

    • OC Air Show says:

      Thank you! We think it’s a pretty awesome idea too that people will really enjoy and will help to keep our guests safe!
