Tips For Avoiding Crowds

  • The tour doesn't take all evening to attend. Most people try to get there right away at 5 pm, but if you wait until later in the evening you'll have easier parking (which costs $10), and less people.
  • If you live in the Twin Ports, go on a weeknight. Fridays and Saturdays are the busiest days.
