If you would like to request special accommodation based on group size, bus scheduling, etc., please contact park staff and we will work with you to the best of our ability. If your students need to arrive at the same time due to transportation, we can arrange for self-guided activities until your tour begins. We may be able to shorten your tours or change the tour times to accommodate your group based on guide availability.
