I bought the tickets on the internet and I paid $35. That was in November, I don't know if prices change with the season.

Hello Adi, It is best to purchase the tickets beforehand as spaces are limited. We would hate to be sold out when you arrive. We look forward to having you aboard. Have a wonderful day. Jared Turner
