Additional Photo Prints - €10.00 (one copy already included)

Why are there adult fees?

To help us control capacity limits inside and the flow of visitors, but don't worry we off-set all adult fees with a hot beverage + baked good token to the ticket value. We just need to know who is attending in advance, as larger families take more time! Only adults entering the Grotto area require a ticket. Adults are welcome to enjoy the experience & photo opps along the way.
