Insider Tips:
– On this family-friendly comedy bus, they let kids under age four ride for free. They’ll need to ride on your lap to qualify for a free seat, however.
– Discounts on tickets are available for old-timers over age 60, kids 12 and under, and groups of 12 or more.
– When bringing kids along, expect a cable TV level of sassiness that they smartly dub “Rated PG-14.”
– Although tips are not required, throwing a few bucks in for gas is greatly appreciated. It takes a lot to move that camo school bus through the hills, after all.
