Due to limited space for this program, reservations are required. Reservations are limited to no more than six per group. We also advise that this program may not be suited for children under the age of 10.
All programs for November and December are currently full.
We are trying a new reservation system for the Candlelight Tours and have had a hitch in the system. We apologize for any frustration or inconvenience you may have experienced. We have extended accepting reservations for January and February programs until 5 pm on December 5.
Placement into the January and February Candlelight Tours is by lottery and the link at the bottom will take you to a form to enter the lottery. Please note that filling out this form DOES NOT GUARANTEE you a reservation.
We will only accept lottery reservation forms for January and February that are submitted between 9:00 AM December 1, 2015 to 5:00 PM on December 5, 2015. Groups selected through the lottery process will be notified by December 17, 2015, so that they can confirm their participation and program date.
