    Children aged 5 and under are admitted FREE if accompanied by a ticket holding adult. Due to safety concerns, we cannot admit more than 2 children per supervising adult. Anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 21.

  • Where should I stay?

    Hangout happens on a 7 mile long island along the Gulf of Mexico. The two towns on the island (Gulf Shores and Orange Beach) are home to thousands of hotels, condos and beach houses.

    Condos and houses are often more affordable than hotels because they have multiple bedrooms and you can split the price with friends. Plus, condos and houses have fully equipped kitchens so you can stock the fridge and freezer with groceries, snacks or cold refreshments.

    When looking for a condo, consider these questions:

    • How many people will be sleeping in the unit?
    • How many separate bedrooms do you need?
    • How many bathrooms do you need?

    Check our trip planning page for more info.
