    Space in each session is limited and availability can also be affected by the weather. We encourage guests to leave a 30-45 minute window prior to the session time they desire for arrival. This will certainly help get the session you want; however, we can not guarantee availability since we do have such high levels of demand. Buying your tickets in advance online is the best way to ensure that you get your desired session.
