(This ticket enables its owner to park freely in the parking plot, he or she can visit the Bükkábrány trees, the exhibitions inside the Visitor Centre, the Miocene forest, open-air rock park trail, boulder cliff trail and the biological study-trails and can enjoy the picnic area with the playground without extra charges.)
With the 4D movie ticket one can have a simulation time travel experience in the Movie Theatre of the Visitor Centre, beside enjoying all of the services listed by the walk ticket.
The geological tour ticket gives the right to an hour-long guided tour to the treasures of the world-famous geological trail. One can witness the excavated areas covered by debris of a volcanic catastrophe some 20 million years ago, fantastic experience to see. At the end of the trail, in the great conservation hall holographic animations reconstruct the animals of the Miocene epoch.

The tickets are sold in the ticket office of the Visitor Centre. The purchase of the walk ticket is compulsory only for those, who do not intend to take the other two services.
