The admission for elementary and secondary school students is $2.90 per person, and each activity or program added on is $1.00 per person. Therefore, a group wishing to book one program and one activity would expect to be charged a total of $4.90 per person ($2.90 + $1.00 + $1.00).

For post-secondary or adult groups (age 18 and over), the fee is the adult group rate.

Fees are accepted by school cheque, credit or debit card, or cash on the day of the field trip.

One teacher or parent chaperone per 15 students is free. Additional adults are welcome, and can enter at the same rate as the students. Fees include taxes.

Please ensure that all schools have a fair chance to participate in our programs: give us at least two weeks' notice of any cancellations, so that we may offer the time slot to another class.


After you book, we will send a confirmation letter.
