Tickets for this day are just $11 per person (scouts, leaders, parents, other family members). Children 6 and under get in free. However, they still need a ticket from the admissions desk. (See Q&A below for additional information.)
Anyone who ordered tickets by Feb. 11 will receive a free commemorative patch (shown above) at check-in. Missed the deadline? No problem. You can still purchase tickets in advance online or on March 2 at the admissions desk for the same discounted rate. There will be forms at the event to order the patch.
