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! 

  • 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.

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

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

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!

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.

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. 

The season pass is only good for visits during normal business hours.  It does not include admission to special events like Twilight Tour or Pumpkins at the Park.  However, it does entitle you to discounts on special events mentioned above.

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!**

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. 

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 3 on your account and assign them a Baby Season Pass. Any child 3 years and older requires a children’s admission.
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. 

Each person needs to have their own season pass, and instead of having a one-size-fits-all or family option, we allow each person to choose which level is right for them.  So some of your family want to do animal feedings each time they visit, then a Silver Pass might be good for them.  If some of your family just want unlimited visits to the wildlife park and splash park during regular hours, then a Basic pass would work fine for them.  If you LOVE feedings, want to bring friends and family each time, feed as much as you want, and have access to all the VIP perks then a Gold Pass is definitely your option.  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!

 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. 

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.

No, season passes will not auto-renew for the 2024 season. The only way to have passes for 2024 is to purchase new ones through the website.

Yes, we will offer a limited number of Silver and Gold Passes with a monthly pay-plan during the March Season Pass Sale.

The silver pass holder will have unlimited visits throughout the season plus 5 animal encounter feedings per visit. The pass holder will also receive 4 single-day passes to use however they want throughout the season!

The benefit of offering multiple passes is that you can mix and match based on your family’s needs! If you have 2 people (kids or adults) who want to feed every time, you could do 1 gold pass, and the second person could be the guest every time. Then the adult(s) accompanying could do a basic pass or a guest pass if someone different would accompany (like a babysitter).

gold and silver season passes

Gold and Silver pass members continue to get exclusive access to the park throughout the winter when we are closed for daily admission. You’ll get texts and emails about special events and warm days when animals can be out, and we can be open for members.

Each person needs to have their own season pass, and instead of having a one-size-fits-all or family option, we allow each person to choose which level is right for them.  So some of your family want to do animal feedings each time they visit, then a Silver Pass might be good for them.  If some of your family just want unlimited visits to the wildlife park and splash park during regular hours, then a Basic pass would work fine for them.  If you LOVE feedings, want to bring friends and family each time, feed as much as you want, and have access to all the VIP perks then a Gold Pass is definitely your option.  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!

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 an Unlimited Feeding wristband 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 2023 so you have the opportunity to stay connected with the animals and Team Tanganyika during the off-season.

Special Ambassador Animal Days, Enrichment Making Workshops, Park Access (weather permitting). Gold and Silver Season Pass Holders will be notified via text when weather permits park to be open. Make sure to check before coming out!

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!

Zoltar is alive and well at Tanganyika and has decided he wants to give Gold Pass Holders free fortunes when you visit on Fridays!

The “Kids eat free on Monday” is a perk for the named Gold Pass holder only, and for children 12 and under. Enjoy a free kid’s meal for them when you’re visiting on Mondays! Options include Chicken Strips, Uncrustable, Mini Corndogs, and Turkey Sandwich!

Join us for extended hours on Wednesdays during the summer! We’ll keep the Park open late until 8pm so you can enjoy animal feedings, and of course the Splash Park. Silver and Gold Pass Holders receive free entry on these evenings! 

This is a manual process, and we’ll load those onto your order and email them to you by December 15th!

No. The gold pass credit/gift card can only be used in the Gift Shop, Canteen, or Experiences.

As long as you continue the season passes, your credit/gift card will roll over and stack for the 2024 season.

This depends on what their favorite things to do are AND what works best for the person bringing them! The silver would give them 5 animal encounter feedings and 4 extra tickets to use towards another person’s admission. The gold pass would take it the next step up and give them unlimited animal encounter feedings for every visit PLUS a guest who also receives the unlimited feedings. This would be the best option to cover yourself and 1 more person for unlimited visits all season, as well as the $100 gift card that could cover your lunches or new favorite stuff from the gift shop.
