During these dates, all members of your group must have a ticket - including kids. Only 25 people are allowed in our Visitor Center at a time (including staff) and we must enforce this limit for safety reasons. If you do not have a ticket, you are welcome to wait in line for possible openings but waiting in line will not guarantee a visit to the HQ cache. The waiting line will be first come, first served, as space is available. We REALLY recommend getting a ticket!
