Hello and thanks very much for your inquiry. We have daily rates from Monday to Thursday and 2 day weekend rates (Friday and Saturday). May is still our lowest rate period of the year and there are no specials per se. Rates are based on the number of people. There are a wide variety of indoor and outdoor recreation activities although it can depend on the weather (May presents us with a bit of a range). Can I suggest you call us at 800-461-1940?
We could give you more details right away. Better not wait though; May is already quite busy. Hope this helps and that we will hear from you soon....
