Each four hour session is $50/child and $100/child for the 8 hour session or $50/family for the nocturnal session.

Your guide is highly trained and is experienced working with children of all ages and ability levels. They also have a current Working with Children Check (Blue Card). Children can attend without a parent or guardian provided they are 12 years or older.
