Do I need a pass for someone under 2 or over 90?

You do not need a pass for a child until they turn 3 years old, and guests over 90 will receive free general admission. 

Are there any restrictions on my Season Pass?

All passes are subject to changed operating hours due to buy-outs and special events.
Current dates for 2024:
June 15 – park closes at 1
July 28 – park closes at 1
Sept 8 – closed all day

What is the digital pass?

The digital pass is a barcode you access on your mobile device in place of a paper or plastic card.  It allows you to enter the Park quicker, receive your discounts in the gift shop, etc. You can access your barcodes by clicking the link in your confirmation email from your season pass purchase. 

Did you purchase a Silver or Gold Season Pass? You’ll also have digital passes for some of your perks such as Single Day tickets and goat feedings that can be redeemed throughout the season! 

What benefits does the season pass have?
You will receive unlimited visits to Tanganyika during the season purchased. You’ll also have access to the Tanganyika Falls Splash Park during regular hours (open Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day Weekend)

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.
How do I purchase the season passes?

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

When do the season passes expire?

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

Can anyone use the pass I purchase?

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:

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 new Guest Pass that can be added to the account.

Do we need to make reservations to visit the Park?

We no longer require reservations to visit the Park! Keep in mind the Park will be busier during Spring Break and holidays. 

How do I access my digital pass?
You can access your barcodes by clicking the link in your confirmation email from your season pass purchase. 

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 if you have the Frequent Feeder pass add-on.
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.

Did you purchase a Silver or Gold Season Pass? You’ll also have digital passes for some of your perks such as Single Day tickets and goat feedings that can be redeemed throughout the season!
Is there a card that will be mailed to us?

We don’t mail out season pass cards.  However, you can use digital passes or print out your own cards by accessing them through them through your email.

Did you purchase a Silver or Gold Season Pass? Visit the Perks Booth on your first visit to receive your printed card!

Can I participate in animal feedings as a season pass holder?

The best way is to purchase or upgrade your pass to the Gold or Silver level.  The Silver Pass includes 5 feedings each time you visit, and the Gold Pass includes unlimited feedings each time you visit.  Plus, the Gold Pass doesn’t require you to make reservations for the hippo feeding, rhino feeding, or lemur island.  Both of them have also been bundled with tons of other perks.

Otherwise, you will have the option to purchase an Encounter wristband (5 feedings for $10) or Unlimited wristband (unlimited feedings for the day, for $25) during your visit. This wristband is not shareable and is for the person wearing it. 

Does the season pass include admission to special events?

The season pass is only good for visits during normal business hours. However, it does entitle you to discounts on some special events.

What are the features available to add-on to my account?
 Feeding Packs– Purchase a pack of wristbands during the sale so you don’t have to worry about using them when you visit! Each wristband will give the guest wearing it 5 feedings. 

Connect and Preserve Package – Surprise the animal lover in your life with a custom animal painting, stuffed animal, sticker, and reusable bag! 30% of proceeds from these purchases go to our conservation partners, such as Action for Cheetahs and International Rhino Foundation!

Popcorn Bucket – Preorder your popcorn bucket and enjoy $2 refills all season long!

Souvenir Cup – Purchase a souvenir cup to enjoy unlimited refills to fountain drinks, slushies, and more.
**Do you still have souvenir cups at home since 2020? Bring them back to the Park and “recharge” them for $9.99 to enjoy refills for the 2023 season without purchasing a new cup!**
What is the Guest Pass add-on?

The Guest Pass is not tied to a specific person like the Season Pass; it is transferable.  This allows anyone to visit on that Guest Pass when attending with a season pass holder on the same account.  You can use each Guest Pass once per day.  The Guest Pass is just $149.99 and ideal for:

  • Families that frequently take in different foster children
  • Families that have a caregiver that may vary
  • Grandparents with dozens of grandchildren, but only a few of them visit at a time
Is there a "family" option?

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

Do I need an ID to purchase passes?

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.

Does my child need an ID if visiting with other people?

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