It was great. Other than the fact we bought our tickets on a website called Get Your Guide. When they went to scan our tickets it shows they expired in September of 2921 we just purchased them on Sept 11,2922 and our tickets said it was for the date Sept 13, 2022. So do t k ow if that is a scam website just beware. They accepted our tickets because they could see the date it was good for

The ride was smooth, we enjoyed the experience and views! Book your ticket online, will save you some time

Unproblematic visit through flexible ticket, however, the adult ticket on site is $1.50 cheaper
