Tanganyika Season Pass Sale Membership Deal 2023

The Tanganyika Season Pass sale is back for 2023! This is usually the best deal of the year on this favorite attraction in Wichita. The 2023 Season Pass Sale starts March 1, so get your purchasing fingers ready on the keyboard. Or you can buy the pass in person at the park when the sale officially begins.

For several years, Tanganyika Wildlife Park has offered its season pass at a sale price that is about the same price as one adult visit! The season passes included optional VIP upgrades. This is the best DEAL! 

It used to be $19.99 then they increased it to $24.99, which was fair considering the extra perks they added and that the pass was inexpensive in the first place. The season pass sale was a no-brainer for most families, which is why everyone bought it. This year they have lowered the price!

Some things to remember: 

  1. Their passes are individual; every individual from 3 to 89 years old needs their own pass. 
  2. Their passes are mixed and matched! Buy Silver Passes for the kids and then add on basic passes for the adults. The kids can feed 5 times each visit, and the parents can tag along. 
  3. The GOLD PASS is a steal…and it sells out every year. If you’re a family of four, buying two Gold Passes for the kids gets them and two adults in with them every visit.
  4. These are SEASON passes, Tanganyika is closed from mid-November to spring break in March. Silver and Gold pass holders do get special winter access throughout the winter. 
  5. Monthly Payment Plans are ONLY available for these passes during the sale. Choose Silver passes for $9/month and Gold for $22/month. 
  6. ASK FOR OUR HELP! They might not get back to you immediately as there are only a few workers on the other side of this screen assisting 10’s of thousands of season pass holders, but they want to help you pick the perfect pass! So just text us at 316-553-4650 if you want to chat, and we’ll get back to you ASAP. 

Recap of prices in the past: 

  • For 2023, it is $24.99, which is cheaper than last year
  • 2022 it was $39.99 
  • 2021 it was $19.99

Before we talk further, everyone needs to understand that a business has the right to set any price it pleases. I’ve always appreciated Tanganyika Wildlife Park and the fact that they offered such an incredible, unbelievable deal to us every season. If they need to increase the price or decrease it, that is totally fair of them. We are just glad this year the price decreased! 

Your question is just whether that means it is affordable for you or not. Simple math – there’s no moral dilemma here or criticism of people or businesses. (Everyone is quick to criticize; I think people are all just doing their best, and that knee-jerk criticism is just lazy thinking.)

Does Tanganyika Have a Family Pass?

Each year, people ask if Tanganyika has a Family Pass and so far, the wildlife park has declined to offer one, opting for its Season Pass Sale instead. 

How Many Discount Season Passes Do I Need?

During this special sale, the price is per person, any age. This is a discount, but you do need a separate pass for each person in the family who is 3 and older. One year I realized I only needed two passes because certain family members (not going to name names…) really weren’t likely to go. 🙂 So keep that in mind when you’re deciding how many passes you need.

You can purchase the discounted passes online (see the link at the end of this post) or at the park beginning March 1.

Tanganyika Open Dates

The park opens for the season in mid-March, according to the website. Be sure to pick up your Tanganyika Wildlife Park season passes while they’re available for the discounted price, and you’ll be able to visit the park all season long!
