Frequently Asked Questions

A: It rains often in Seattle so we keep all tours operating regardless of the weather. Fortunately, a good deal of the tour is covered.

Extra Guests

A: Fury friends are not recommended, as they aren’t allowed in many parts of the market. You’ll have to wait outside which defeats the purpose.

A: You may bring your children as we leave it up to the parent to make the judgment as to whether they will enjoy this type of activity. Children 3 and under who will not be eating, do not need to buy a ticket.

Diet / Food
