Tips for Families

The younger your kids are the less you are likely to get out of this visit. There are a lot of boards to read and it is probably best suited for middle school kids.

Tips for Families

Ticket prices range from $19.95 for adults (ages 18-64), $14.95 for seniors (ages 65+), and $13.95 for youth (ages 7-17). Children ages 6 and under are free. Keep an eye out for discounts. I was able to use a Groupon discounted ticket for only $10 for an adult. So keep your eyes open for specials.
