With three different season passes, including the Silver Pass, Gold Pass, and Unlimited Pass, you can experience all Tanganyika has to offer all season long.

Basic Pass – The basic season pass to Tanganyika Wildlife Park is a great option for families who want to enjoy the park all season without breaking the bank. At just $24.99, the pass costs less than a single day’s admission, making it a no-brainer for families who plan to visit multiple times or even just once. 

While this wildlife season pass doesn’t include animal feedings, it’s still a fantastic value for larger families who need to purchase multiple passes. To get the most out of your basic pass,visit the park at least once, then use your 10% discount on birthdays, camps, food and drinks, and the gift shop. Even if you just visit the splash park one time this summer, this pass is beyond worth the value!

Silver Pass – In addition to unlimited visits all season and Tanganyika Falls Splash Park access, the silver pass includes five feedings for the pass holder each time you visit! This is the second most popular pass for kids. And with discounted admission for guests, you can even bring your friends and family along to share in the fun.

But that’s not all! The Silver Pass also offers a variety of additional benefits, including discounts on purchases made in the park and exclusive access to events throughout the season. This Wichita zoo season pass also gives you access to exclusive winter events and good weather days, PLUS Wild Wednesdays throughout the summer. 

If you or your kids love feeding the animals and plan to spend time this summer in the splash park, the Silver Pass is your best option. Just three visits throughout the season, and it pays for itself.

Gold Pass – This is our most popular pass for kids because it’s essentially a two-for-one pass! When your kiddo has the Gold Pass, they can bring one person with them every visit. It also includes all the perks of the Silver Pass: winter access, Wild Wednesdays, printed cards and more. 

Gold Pass holders can really cash in on the best parts of Tanganyika by using their $100 gift card to meet a sloth, hang out with a giraffe, or snack and Luna’s cafe. Every Monday, Gold Pass kids eat free, and all summer long, they get early entry. This $940 value is a no-brainer. We also ONLY offer 1500 of these passes each year, and they will sell out!

Mix-N-Match – The best part about this Wichita zoo season pass is that our passes are for individuals so each person needs to have their own season pass. Instead of having a one-size-fits-all or family option, we allow each person to choose which level is right for them.  

We helped a family new to the Wichita area customize a package perfect for their family of 4! They purchased four gold passes for the family so they could bring friends, attend Wild Wednesdays, and they got $400 in gift cards to use at the park!

Sheryl wanted her daughter to be able to feed animals on every visit but didn’t need all the bells and whistles of the Gold Pass. Plus, they wanted mom, dad, grandma, AND the babysitter to be able to bring her daughter to the park. So they purchased a Silver Pass for their daughter and a guest pass so anyone could accompany her. They got four free admission tickets with the Silver Pass, so they’ll be able to bring more guests four times.

In other words, mix and match the levels that best fit your family and how you would connect. Don’t know what you need? Just reach out, and we’re happy to help you find the best combo for you and your family!
