  • Transportation must remain available on-site as tours may be interrupted or cancelled on short notice due to call volume.
  • Visits are a maximum of one hour.
  • Appropriate adult/child ratio shall be maintained throughout the visit to ensure adequate control and supervision.   This is one adult within your group for every 5 children.
