Season Passes

  •  You will receive unlimited visits to Tanganyika during the season purchased. New for 2021, you’ll also have access to the Tanganyika Falls splash park during regular hours. 
  •  Plus, we offer a variety of discounts for Season Pass Holders: 
  • 10% off Gift Shop
  • 10% off Food and Beverages 
  • 10% off Special Events like Twilight Tour and Pumpkins at the Park
  • 10% off Birthday Parties, Day Camps, and Summer Camps
  • $5 off Admission for guests that visit with you!
  • To receive your discounts, you will present your digital pass at the register to be scanned.

Yes.  We have reserved a small percentage of spaces for each time slot exclusively for single-day admission guests.  Therefore, the Season Pass portal may show that tickets are unavailable for the time you are interested even though there is availability on the website.

The restrictions apply to Basic and Silver pass holders; Gold Pass holders are not restricted.

You can purchase season passes online, over the phone (316-794-8954), or come by Tanganyika to purchase them.

The Season Passes will expire at the end of the season they were purchased, which is generally in November. 

  • You do not need a pass for a child until they turn 3 years old, and guests over 90 will receive free entry to the Park. 
  • You can still have your child under 2 on your account and assign them a Baby Season Pass. 
No. Each pass is for a single individual. For example, our family of five from above (John, Jane, Luke, Clare, and Anna) want to visit TWP using season passes, they would purchase five season passes; one for each person.  They couldn’t purchase three season passes to mix and match between them. For instance:
  • Allowed
    Purchase 5 Season Passes
  •  John – Adult Season Pass
     Jane – Adult Season Pass
     Luke – Child Season Pass
     Clare – Child Season Pass
     Anna – Child Season Pass
  • Not Allowed
    Purchase 3 passes
  • Visit 1
     Adult Season Pass  1 – Lisa
     Child Season Pass  1 – Luke
     Child Season Pass  2 – Clare
  • Visit 2
     Adult Season Pass 1 – Matt
     ChildSeason Pass 1 – Luke
     ChildSeason Pass 2 – Anna
  • If you have a situation that requires a different person to attend such as foster children, caregivers, etc, check out our Guest Pass that can be added to the account. 

There isn’t currently an option to purchase one pass that would include the entire family. It is something we have considered, but do not offer at this time. 

 You do NOT need an ID (driver’s license, passport, etc) to purchase passes. However, adults will need a photo ID to enter the Park unless they have uploaded their photos to their account. 

We know that Season Pass holders from 2020 may not have visited the Park due to coronavirus. For this reason, we created a promise to our biggest fans to preserve their Season Pass. Simply put, if you weren’t able to visit the Park one single time in 2020, your passes are eligible to be preserved for 2021. The Connect and Preserve Promise only applies to the named Season Passes, Guest Passes, and NOT Frequent Feeder passes, photo passes, etc

You can follow the steps on this link to preserve your passes for 2021. The Connect and Preserve promise only applies to the named Season Passes and Guest Passes that were purchased. 

We are taking extra measures due to COVID-19, and are requiring all guests to make reservations for their visit. 

When you’re ready, Basic and Silver season pass holders can make reservations here!  Gold Pass holders will receive a link to an exclusive portal for all their benefits. When you make your reservation, you will select your entry time, a 30-minute window for arrival. Once you’re checked in, you’re welcome to stay until we close for the day!

We will still scan your digital pass or printed card when you arrive, so only select 1 ticket for each pass holder or guest (if you have a guest pass) that will be entering with you at the time selected. If you don’t have your digital pass, any adult on the account can show their photo ID to check-in your group. 

We don’t mail out season pass cards. However, you can use digital passes or print out your own cards by accessing them through the member portal (see above). 

  • To access your digital passes, log in to the member portal.  Once logged in, you will see the digital pass section with a button that says, “Check Out Your Passes”, which will take you to the digital passes.
  • If you don’t have your access to your digital pass, we just need one member from your party to check-in with a photo ID.  If they are children and don’t have a photo ID, we can still check them in.  It also helps to have the digital pass, so you can access your discounts and encounters.
  • Helpful Hint:  You can upload a photo of each person so that the blank icon above shows their face.  Then we don’t need a photo ID for that person.

To interact with the animals, you will have the option to purchase an Encounter Pass (5 feedings for $10) or Unlimited Encounters (unlimited feedings for the day, for $25) each time you visit. 

We are thrilled with the success of the Frequent Feeder pass and never dreamed so many of you would use it as often as you have.  In fact, the pass has been too successful. While the number of feeders has grown exponentially, the number of animals in our care has not, so we’ve reached a point where we need to balance creating a great experience for guests while making sure our animals maintain an adequate diet.

For those who want to connect, we have two new options: the Silver Pass and the Gold Pass.  Silver Pass holders will receive 5 feedings each visit and the Gold Pass holders will receive unlimited feedings each visit.  In addition, we bundled a bunch of other benefits into the passes based on your feedback.

For those who don’t wish to take advantage of the benefits from the new Gold and Silver Passes, you’ll still be able to purchase a feeding wristband each time you visit. The Encounter wristband includes 5 feedings for $10 per person and the Unlimited wristband includes unlimited feedings for $25 per person.

Your child does not need an ID to be checked in. However, we recommend that their photo is uploaded to the membership portal, so we can ensure it is them. 

Yes! You are able to upgrade your passes at any point during our season. Just ask one of our support team and they can assist you in your upgrade.

Connect & Preserve Promise

You can follow the steps on this link to preserve your passes for 2021. The Connect and Preserve promise only applies to the named season passes and guest passes that were purchased. 

While we have tried to make the process as simple as possible for you, preserving your pass requires a significant amount of work on the backend. The $1.99 is to help cover the cost of administering/processing the transfer. While the Guest Pass preservation is a one-time option, we will be allowing everyone that preserves their named Season Pass will have the bonus of locking in the $24.99 for future years.

The Encounter wristband includes 5 feedings for $10 per person and the Unlimited wristband includes unlimited feedings for $25 per person.

Yes! Instead of having a Preservation Pass for 2021, you can choose to upgrade to a Gold or Silver Pass. If you’d like to do so, we can apply what you paid for your Season Pass in 2020 towards the new passes. Only one discount can be applied per individual. If you purchased Frequent Feeder passes in 2020, their value can also be applied towards your upgrade! Please note that discounts can only be applied for a one-time payment option. 

gold and silver season passes

All of our passes available are for an individual. Our Gold Pass Season Pass includes a Guest Pass with unlimited visits as long as the guest attends with the pass holder. Feel free to call, and any of our team members can help you find the best bundle to maximize your value!

The Gold and Silver Passes are purchased per individual, and their perks cannot be shared amongst other pass holders on the account.

Your guest will be to participate in Early Entry and Tanganyika Falls After Hours for free when attending with the Gold Pass holder, and gift cards can be used for any purchase that might benefit your guest. All other benefits are not shareable.

The Gold and Silver season passes are good for unlimited visits during Tanganyika’s regular season (March – November).  However, the Gold and Silver passes will get you access to new experiences and activities after we close in November 2021 so you have the opportunity to stay connected with the animals and Team Tanganyika during the off-season.

These are currently being developed and will become available starting November 2021. 

These events are actually something new we are doing for 2021! An example would be an evening of entertainment from Dueling Pianos in The Courtyard next to Tanganyika Falls Splash Park. The Park’s annual fundraisers, such as Twilight Tour and Pumpkins in the Park are omitted. 

You can pick up your bumper magnet and t-shirt on your first visit to the Park after opening for the season. If you purchased your pass during our Holiday sale and have a bonus gift card, it is stored on your account and acts as stored value. The Gift Card can be used on anything inside the Park except for our annual fundraisers.

We offer Early Entry during the summer months to access the Park up to one hour before the Park opens. You’ll get to experience the Park waking up for the day, such as keepers preparing the animal’ habitats, animals eating their breakfast, and more! This is a great perk, especially during the heat of the summer!

You will still need to make reservations to visit with both passes.  However, the Gold Pass allows you to participate in all the animal encounters without a reservation.
