We can accommodate groups of 15 to 180. Schools with less than 60 students will rotate to each of the three destinations together. Schools with more than 60 students will be divided into two or three equally sized groups. Each of the groups will start at a different destination to begin their rotation.
Cost
Admission to three fieldtrip destinations and lunch are just $24 per student! Teachers and chaperones get free admission to all fieldtrip destinations and pay only $6 each for lunch. (Please note: Deposit of 50% required at time of booking. Schools receive full refund if cancelled four weeks out. Only 25% of deposit will be refunded if cancelled less than four weeks out.)  
Lunch Lunches include either a turkey or ham sandwich (salad available for special requests), a fresh fruit cup, chips and drink (choose from Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite or bottled water). Final numbers are required four business days before fieldtrip date and will be the number of lunches charged to the group. Additional lunches are $6 per person.
