  • Used to be free to all, now it's used as a revenue generator from tourists. $18 is too much with no difference in maintenance from when it was free. It was funded before by DOC and local support which ended when the land was "taken back". Now with excuses of insurance changes. Better off going to the Blue springs or other places you can see where the $18 goes.
  • It used to be free, trust me it was amazing to go to. But I calculated my whole family it's $80 .It's free if your a local but you need a card which is also $10 each. I'll go again when I have my card. Otherwise I'm sad it costs money now
