I did the pin drop and the Elvis cutaway and they were both amazing. The crew there were awesome and made it even more enjoyable.

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!
