GRANDFATHER MOUNTAIN, N.C. (AP) - Visitors to Grandfather Mountain now can buy admission tickets to the park without leaving home.

People may now buy tickets online. The new option, which launched on Monday, allows visitors to buy tickets ahead of time and also lets them take a shortcut into the park on selected busy weekends.

Harris Prevost, vice president of the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation, said officials hope online sales will help ease traffic congestion at the entrance by allowing guests who have already purchased tickets to enter the park another way during busy dates.

Visitors can go to tickets.grandfather.com to purchase regular adult, senior or child tickets, as well as AAA Motor Club discounted tickets, using any major debit or credit card. Online prices are identical to tickets sold at the entrance gate.
