The new fee proposal is to change the Rotunda/Throne adult cave tours from $18.95 to $22.95 and children’s fees (7- to 12-year-old) from $9.95 to $12.95 and (6 and under free).
Public comments on these fees will be accepted online until Aug. 29. Comments may be submitted at AZStateParks.com/find/contact.html.
The Arizona State Parks Board will be presented this information from park staff who say this solution will increase income to the park and reduce overhead costs by suspending tours in the Rotunda/Throne room from Oct. 15 until Dec. 15. This will also allow time for this portion of the cave to have a rest from the public while research can be conducted.
