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

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.

All passes are subject to  changed operating hours due to buy-outs and special events.

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. and utilize the new sharing options on the Frequent Feeder pass add-on.  Therefore, it's important to know how to access it.  To learn how to access your digital pass, click here.

Helpful Hint: You will see an option to print the "digital passes" underneath each person's name in the digital pass section of the in the member portal.  We can scan those barcodes if you don't have a mobile device or don't want to use it.  

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.

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. 

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

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

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 new Guest Pass that can be added to the account.

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 pass holders can make your reservations here! Gold Pass holders will receive an link to an exclusive portal for all their reservations. 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 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. 

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 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.

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).

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. 

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 include admission to promotional days like Bunny Bonanza and it does entitle you to discounts on special events mentioned above.

Frequent Feeder Pass - The Frequent Feeder gives you 5 animal encounters for each visit to the Park.  here are the most frequently asked questions for the Frequent Feeder pass:

Photo Pass -  Unless you purchase animal encounters each time you visit, you don't get the opportunity for lemur photos.  The Photo Pass will allow you to receive digital photos at the lemur encounter and camel ride each time you visit for only $20.  You will get a card with a lanyard that can be scanned each time you participate in those activities and all the photos will be saved in one location.  Plus, you can purchase a printed copy of any of the digital photos at our photo booth.

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 $60 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

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.

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.

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.  Click here to watch a quick tutorial on how to add the profile photos to your account.

Connect & Preserve Promise FAQ's

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.

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 could also be applied towards your upgrade! Please note that discounts can only be applied for a one-time payment option.
