ADD ON ACTIVITES: Add-on activities in Carousel Gardens can be purchased ALONG WITH a driving tour ticket (not separate from) and they must be used the same night.

City Park is implementing a new ticketing process and system for the event this year to ensure a positive guest experience. At the time of purchase, guests will choose a date and time to experience the driving tour. Tickets will not be valid any other date or time that is outside of the one purchased. Guests will show their digital phone or printed QR code upon arrival, and enter the queue to begin the driving tour. Guests are required to stay in their vehicles at all times for their safety and for the staff's safety. There are no public bathrooms to use at this event.

Add-on options must be purchased in conjunction with a Driving Tour prior to reaching the admission gate.
