On your next visit to The Living Desert, consider taking a ride on a shuttle. A trip on the shuttle moves you around the park faster, is an informative way to learn about the exhibits you are approaching, keeps you on time for enjoying daily events, and tells you what is new and exciting. Our drivers are very knowledgeable and have access to park staff, who can provide answers to more specific questions.
You can start your day with a quick tour to preview the entire park and then hop on and off all day long. There are 11 shuttle stops conveniently located in key locations and shuttles stop every 15 minutes. Best of all, if there is an exhibit or place you want to be, just tell a driver where you want to go and they will make sure you get there.
All day shuttle rides are $6.00 for adults, $3.00 for children, and children under 3 are FREE!
|Children (Ages 3 – 12)||$3.00|
