I want to sign up for a boat tour and/or a Minaret climb. Where can I do so?
This year, we will be offering those events on a first-come, first-served basis. The boat tours will be offered during the times listed in the schedule. Families will show up when they want to ride, and be loaded onto the next tour. Minaret climbs will function in the same way. Families wishing to partake in a Minaret climb will have to go to Plant Hall to be assigned to the next tour. More information will be available at check-in.
