Unlimited Pass

The BEST VALUE pass is our Unlimited Pass. It’s the only pass around with so much value built in.

Here's what you get:

1. Unlimited Feedings

It’s what we do wildly different and you experience it without limits

2. Happy Hour, 2-4PM

Local draft beer on a warm Kansas afternoon while your kids play at the jungle gym.

3. Last Minute Rain Checks

We know plans change. Last minute, no stress, rescheduling.

4. No Reservations required for feedings

Our most popular attraction is animal feeding, so we limit the volume for both the wildlife and for the lines by requiring reservations. With the Unlimited Pass, you get VIP treatment and avoid this hassle.

5. You Get a Bonus Day!

Come back a 2nd day for Unlimited everything! Best option for weekend visitors, families that like to take it all in – come back just to feed or just to take in the splash park in the summer.

Great experience at a super nice facility!

The new Waterpark is great due to nice shaded seating and beverage options for parents! The gold membership to do this after hours is 100% worth it! AND this place is totally privately financed and no government funding!

Krissi added on one of our behind the scenes experiences and it made her day!

The Behind the Scenes Sloth Experience is a must! The zookeeper was full of information and the Sloth's are just the cutest! Chewbacca and Molasses made our day!

Katherine enjoyed three of our upgraded animal experiences and loved our friendly staff!

We did several experiences today. The entire process and visit was wonderful. LynnLee made scheduling so easy and provided me several opportunities for our trip. Ian introduced my family to Chewie, the sloth. Chewie was so sweet and Ian is so full on information. My family also got to visit with Emerald, the red ruffed lemur. Emerald was gorgeous and very interactive. Her keepers, Emily and Emma were amazing also. We wrapped our visit up by feeding a penguin chick, amazing and highly recommended. Melissa, one of the penguin keepers, taught us so much about the African penguin species and was great also. The entire staff was so accommodating. We made the trip during a winter storm and we are glad we did! We were barely even back home before we started planning our next road trip back. Thank you so very much!!

1st Timer Tips in Review!
THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!!! We've had friends go and come back ranting and raving about it so it's been on our bucket list for awhile now. It lived up to the high expectations. Lots & lots of animal encounters and the nice thing is even if you go during the week, THEY ALL ARE OPEN (they just do a rotation which isn't a big deal). The splash park was an added plus.


(1) You definitely want to plan a full day here if you have kids.

(2) Buy the unlimited pass for the kiddos but the general admission pass for adults. This will let you splurge on giving the kid's the ultimate experience with unlimited animal feedings but also save you a few bucks too. The general admission pass allows you to still go everywhere your kids go and watch them feed. All you miss out on is being the one that ACTUALLY puts the food in the animals mouths which was no big deal to us.

(3) If the weather is nice enough, bring an extra set a clothes or swimsuit/towel cause the kids will be craving to go to the splash park once their eyes see it. It's included in your admission and they offer changing rooms.

(4) You can probably skip the $10 add-on penguin feeding, it was over pretty quick.

Soft little Lemur feet gently crossed our legs as we sat four in a row
Soft little Lemur feet gently crossed our legs as we sat four in a row- still as we could be. Each child got to feed two raisins and get close up view. I expected wonderment from the six year old boy at getting to be with the animals, but the fourteen-year-old was just as delighted. There was a meet and greet with the otters where we watched busy guys play and talk! We were there on a very hot day, however there is enough shade that you can relax between feedings. Worth the extra money.

Chelsea loved her up close experience and saw the pride our team has in the park!

I had such a great time here! I love how interactive the experiences are. I felt like I was meeting animals in the wild instead of just looking at the from a far distance. The staff was very friendly and informative. The building/bathrooms were clean. Overall the whole experience was awesome and I will definitely be back!

The Kids!

Any child that deserves an unforgettable day with photos.

Animal experiences are upgrades that range from $37 to $399 depending on the animal, our internal logistics, time of the day, training involved and size of the group. If this add-on is out of your budget, Tanganyika’s feedings are fun and fulfilling.
