GLEN, N.H. (CBS) — Two New Hampshire attractions are joining the cashless trend. Story Land and neighboring Living Shores Aquarium will only be accepting credit, debit or prepaid cards and mobile payments from customers when they open for the season on May 21.

Visitors who prefer cash can use kiosks at both attractions to convert their cash onto a prepaid card for no additional fee.
