Critics allege Arizona memorial ticket hoarding
PEARL HARBOR, Oahu — Officials say more tickets to visit the USS Arizona Memorial are being picked up online in bulk orders of 65.
Critics blame tour companies, and say no tickets are left by the time individual visitors try to reserve them.
The executive director of the Pacific Aviation Museum nearby says many visitors don’t visit Pearl Harbor when they see tickets are sold out online. Ken Dehoff told KHON museum revenue is declining as a result.
The National Park Service says it’s working to improve the system. Superintendent Paul DePrey says more tickets available at the box office, especially in the afternoon.
People may reserve up to 65 tickets at a time online up to six months in advance. There’s no limit to the number of times you can reserve them.
