A Note on Ticketing Fees:
We try to keep our box office costs low, but unfortunately do have to pass on a $2 Booking Fee per entry ticket and 2.8% Transaction Fee to cover credit/debit cards and administration. We have already added the $2 fee to the ticket prices above, the processing fee will be added at checkout.
