Why did you decide to go cashless or limit areas for cash?

It's Safer Keeping guests and staff members safe is top priority for us on the farm. Cashless transactions have proven to be safer in retail and amusement park venues than handling money. It's Faster Eliminating the need to make change allows for quicker transaction times and lower wait times, making your experience even better! Less Loss & Efficiently The cashless model allows us to operate more efficiently and effectively, giving our staff members the opportunity to focus more on you, our guest. (We will still take cash, but we are trying to move away from it inside, thank you )
