- Tickets required.You can buy tickets in advance on line ($12 for kids 12 and under and $15 for adults) but the shows rarely sell out, so if you decide to go at the last minute, you should get in. There are single shows on some weekdays and on weekends, there are usually 2, sometimes 3 shows per day. All shows have one performance with ASL interpretation.
- Next to the carousel. The theater is generally appropriate for kids 4 and older. With small children, give yourself at least 10 minutes to walk from the parking lot through the park to the theatre. Go over the wooden foot bridge and follow the path up to the Carousel. Adventure Theatre is to the left of the Carousel under the red towers.
