    So glad to hear you’ll be back. Will the roof top restaurant open as well?

    Hi there! Will you be requiring proof of immunization? I plan on going to WAG in the upcoming weeks with my friend, however she is an international student who cannot apply for a vaccination card even though she is fully immunized. Thanks!

    Hi, we are looking forward to bringing our niece and nephew (ages 8 and 10) later this month. Have there been any issues with wait times of folks not being able to get in because of the 50% capacity. I know it may be taking some time for number to ramp up but wanted to avoid disappointment if possible. Thanks!
