As we approach the holiday season, please know we are expecting to be busier than usual with the potential for long entry lines. Please arrive up to 15 minutes before your ticketed time to allow sufficient time for entry, including bag checks and other security measures. We kindly ask at this time that if it is possible to leave strollers and large bags at home please do so. We look forward to welcoming you for your visit.
