If you bring a flashlight, please bring a red-light flashlight so as not to ruin the night vision for you or others while on the boardwalk.  If you only have a white light flashlight, you can ask at our admissions desk for red cellophane to cover the lens.


Adult admission is $14 each for adults.  Children 18 and younger are admitted free with an adult accompanying them..  Admission is good for two consecutive days, so come back and enjoy the boardwalk in the daylight hours on Saturday also.  As always, Friends of Corkscrew Members enjoy free admission.
