This has been the favorite field trip so far, hands-down! And tickets were only $5 each compared to the ridiculous amount they charge for regular admission. The oldest 2 kids did a short educational component from noon to 12:45 and we got to walk around the park the whole rest of the day (before and after). What a deal! Since we were part of a field trip, we also got to bring our own food into the park - we got subs for everyone at Subway with their BOGO before 9 AM deal. All 9 of us ate for less than $20! All we had to buy there were drinks and, of course, the infamous apple fries. Oh my yumminess!
