As the second-most attended Botanical Garden in the country, the Desert Botanical Gardens processes a significant number of sales through their four ticket booth windows. Annual attendance reached 500,000 for 2013 and is projected to double in 2014 with the installation of the Dale Chihuly exhibit, Chihuly in the Garden. On an average day a ticket seller processes 300-400 transactions. On busy days? That number can increase exponentially.
