Lap Seating for toddlers

If your have a child small enough to sit on your lap you are welcome to do so and that child will not need an additional ticket. We do have a minimum reservation of 2 seats to make sure parents stay with children, but lap seating will allow more walk-in guests to join us. Just let us know at the door so we keep a proper count of available seats!
