    are you guys having a animal show this year if so when and what

  2. Will they have the helicopter rides this year at the park

  3. Heidi Roberts says:

    Why is there no information (here or on the website) about ticket prices? I only see information about discounts.

    • The only ticket price that I know is the admission price which is $5 per person over 10 years old. If you are asking about the tickets for riding the rides, you could message the Cherry Blossom people to find out. That may be a price set by the company that supplies the rides – I’m not sure. I hope this helps.

  4. Am I allowed to bring my dog with me?
