For Groups over 20, please make Reservations, so we may staff accordingly. In order to make reservations on-line, drop us a note stating the total number in your group and their ages. The day you would like to reserve and at least one back up date, in case the first one is already booked, as well as the time you would like to arrive. We will confirm and answer any questions you may have, upon reply. A separate invoice will be sent after all the details are set, this should make it a little easier for our schools to get the paperwork they need in order to set up a field trip through their administration as well as other organizations. If we can be of any other assistance just let us know! Please Read the Tips and Planning Page it will help make your trip a great one!
