Remember to print out your Hauntaquarium ticket/confirmation email and check that it is for the correct night. We will not be able to refund or have access to purchase history during the event. Showing your ticket or printout at the lot gate also gives you access to FREE parking that night.
We suggest you arrive between 6 – 8pm. (The event ends at 9pm.) Be advised that we expect a high volume of traffic when Aquarium doors open at 6pm.
There is FREE parking when a ticket that has been prepurchased is shown at the parking booth. Parking for all other guests is $3.
