Use this online form to pay your admission fee(s) in advance and reserve your seat for the Talons Summer Flight Show.

To choose the date of your visit (and flight show program time), please click the "Other dates" link below the calendar icon. On the calendar pop-up window, click on the date you will attend. Please note that on Saturdays, there are two flight show times and the system defaults to the 11 am show if tickets are still available for that show. If you wish to attend the 1:00 pm, click the "Other times" link to the right of the time slot icon and select the 1:00 pm time.

If you  have questions, please call Visitor Services at (704) 875-6521 ext.107 to speak to a Visitor Services Associate.

Please arrive half an hour early so that you won't miss the show. Online tickets sales end at MIDNIGHT the night before the show, and in-person ticket sales at the Visitor Center end 30 minutes before the show begins.

Gates to amphitheater open 30 minutes before show time. Ticketed customers should be in their seats by 15 minutes before show time. Because the show is FREE, staff will then "fill the house" in order to offer this experience to as many patrons as possible. Unfortunately, due to the terrain and flight paths of the birds at our amphitheater, we can only accommodate one wheelchair. Electric chairs will find the Raptor Trail particularly hazardous and are not recommended for use on CRC's bumpy trails. Strollers are not permitted in amphitheater. There are 80 seats per show.

The FREE Talons Flight Show program is made possible through a generous grant from the Duke Energy Foundation.
