    Great price

    Our trip was great! There was a little confusion about where to get our tickets when we arrived, but everyone was very friendly while helping us. On a side note be prepared to rack over some cash for parking. We parked in the Badin lot next to the aquarium and it costs us $43 for 6 hours!

    waste of time and money

    When I ordered, the email said my tickets would be sent in a separate email. I had to call customer service to find out that I had to show a voucher to the ticket booth. When I arrived at the venue, I still had to wait in line with everyone else, just to get tickets...even though I paid for them in advance. This method caused me To waste time in line, and the $7.50 surcharge made it more expensive than if I went to the venue without prepurchasing.

    Walt, We are sorry to hear you had difficulty receiving your confirmation voucher. The initial email you received had an attachment which was the voucher. It appears the customer service team did resend your voucher to you via text confirmation and email several times. All customers must stand in line to check in as that is the policy for all ticket holders and the listing does state to check in at the booth. There was a 10% off promo code on the listing that you did not utilize, therefore your tickets were not as discounted as you would have liked. We are sorry you missed where to enter that code and for your trouble, we have entered it for you and refunded you the difference. The refund can take 5-7 business days to reflect on your card. We appreciate your feedback and business.

    Awful

    Bought the tickets in advance but still had to wait in the line to buy tickets and then had to fill out a form by hand. Actually took much longer than if i had just bought them the normal way. Pointless and aggravating.
