Our staff and volunteers will continue to wear face masks on our shuttle bus service and all other indoor spaces for your safety. We won’t be able to give you a face covering, so if your group do want to wear one, please come prepared.

    • SHUTTLE BUS: The shuttle bus is available for school groups to use.
    • PARKING: Free coach parking is available. A maximum parking of 2 hours is allowed on site.
    • EDUCATION ROOM: Our education room is not available at this time. Please check this page for future updates.
