Residents of those three counties can purchase a one-day admission for $19 for adults, and $14 for children ages 3 – 11.

“As part of the Mercury initiative, guests are encouraged to bring canned goods and nonperishable food items to donate to the local Second Harvest Food Bank,” a spokesperson said.
