We offer multiple ‘sliding scale’ prices to choose from.  If you can afford to pay more, this helps us keep the base prices low.  

~ Important directions ~ 

Choose only one ticket type and price.  Convert current price shown to ‘choose option’ to make other ticket types active. Then choose the ticket and price you want. All other unchosen ticket types should say ‘Not a…’.  You may have to change the ‘choose option’ ticket to ‘Not a…’.  When that is done, the ‘add to cart’ button will become active.  At this point, to the left of ‘add to cart’, you can choose multiples of the chosen ticket type, for example if there are multiple adults in your party paying the same price.   After you press ‘add to cart’ to finish and pay, press ‘view cart’ at the top.  Thanks!
