What You Need to Know about the Admissions and Amusement Tax

Some ZAVAZONE parks may be subject to a regional Admissions and Amusement (A&A), which could affect certain rates and offers.

What is the Admissions & Amusement Tax?

This tax ONLY applies to ZAVAZONE parks in Maryland and is mostly distributed to the City of Rockville.

All indoor recreation facilities must pay this tax on all admission, rental and party fees.

Sales and use tax exemptions do not apply to this tax. See official information here.

How much is the tax?

10% for admissions

Why does ZavaZone add this fee?

To comply with Maryland state law, ZavaZone must add this tax on top of the applicable fees.

Guests will notice that the tax is separated on each invoice. This allows them to see the total amount that will be paid on their behalf in order to fulfill the park’s A&A tax requirement.
