This is a hard question to answer, because it depends on how busy the day is, how old riders are, how many people are with you, and how long you want to stay. We recommend that you start with $5 per person, but remember there are no refunds on tickets. However, if you do not use all your tickets they do not expire and they can be used from year to year.
