We encourage visitors to make a reservation online in advance to ensure there is space available on the day and time you’d like to visit. Walk-ups are welcome if there is space available. Reservations are added each day at 10am, Wednesday-Sunday. You may see some blocked out dates into the future because we are only taking reservations two weeks in advance.
Reservations can be made for parties of up to 9 people. When reserving a time, please indicate the number of children and adults in your party. Every person in your party needs to be included in your reservation. If your party is 10 or more you will need to book as a group. Group bookings are available on a limited basis. Click here for school and youth groups, and click here for adult groups.
Hours: Wednesdays 10am-8pm and Thursday through Sunday 10am-5pm.
