    I see that you’re open from 6am but that help desk for online reservations only opens at 9am.
    So, if we book online, it is not possible to come before 9am?
    Can we come at 6am if we buy tickets on the spot?
    Also, can we come to the baths in the morning, leave, and then come back later in the afternoon with the same day ticket?
    Thanks in advance!
