Tipping rickshaw drivers

We'll be at RPR in early Nov and plan on going to Blue Man Group that Friday night. Will rickshaw drivers be outside after the show? Also how much do you tip them to take you from BMG to RPR (two people)?

I have only taken the rickshaw from HRH to IoA, it was me and my young son, and we tipped $5. With BMG personally I would tip $10 or more. I do know that I have seen other threads in the past discussing this question, so you might do an advanced search and see what you find.

The rickshaws are a fun alternative to the boats or walking, but either of those would be fine too. Nothing is too too far from each other.

Are there rickshaws available at RPR in the early a.m.'s to take you to IOA for early entry to WWOHP? I heard the wait for the boat is long; we were gonna hoof it, but rickshaw might be an option?

Is there a separate charge for the rickshaw, or just the tip?
