You can purchase the ticket in advance on its official website. Bus it only has Chinese version. Thus you can try to dial 400-0691-111 and see whether if you can book through this hotline.
The opening hours are 10:00-20:30 and 16:00 to 20:30 (for the night ticket).
As I know, the refurbishment work had already finished.
