Online Timed Tickecting

In order to reduce capacity, utilize contact less payment and maintain social distancing for the 2020 season we are selling tickets online only. We are selling timed tickets for each half hour we are open. In order to limit group size we are only selling tickets in groups of 4 to 8 people. In order to increase spacing between groups there are only a limited amount of group tickets for each time slot. Your group will not be combined with any other group. This will decrease wait times and ensure social distancing. Your tickets for your group will be scanned off your phone, please turn your brightness on your phone all the way up for easy scanning. Only one person from each group needs to show the tickets for thier group. In order to ensure reduced capacity tickets must be used for the Date and Time specified on the ticket.
