The Tanganyika Season Pass sale is on again, and this is really the best deal of the year on this favorite attraction in Wichita.
So get your purchasing fingers ready on the keyboard. Or you can buy the pass in person at the park.
The regular-price Tanganyika season pass will still save you money if you plan to visit the wildlife park more than a couple of times this summer. But the season pass sale is a no-brainer even if you only think you’ll visit once or twice!
The season pass allows you unlimited visits to Tanganyika Wildlife Park for their entire season, from early March until early November. (They’re closed during the winter months.)
2020 Season Pass Sale at Tanganyika
Tanganyika Season Pass sale – March 1-14 only:
For a limited time, Tanganyika Wildlife Park is offering its 2020 season pass for almost the same price as one adult visit! The offer is only good from March 1-14, 2020.
The price of the specially discounted season pass is slightly higher this year, at $24.99 per person for all ages 3 years old and above. (Children 2 and younger get in free.) That’s barely more than the price of one adult ticket to Tanganyika, and is good for unlimited visits until the park closes for the winter in November.
UPDATE In 2020, they have some exciting plans that will make Tanganyika Wildlife Park even more value to the season pass and even more fun for the family!
“Our new and improved 2020 season passes hold more value than ever due to some big new features that will be added to the park—including Tanganyika Falls, our brand-new SPLASH PARK opening in summer 2020!”
Here’s the announcement of Facebook.
The season passes will be available to purchase March 1-14, 2020!
How Many Discount Season Passes Do I Need?
During this special sale, the price is $24.99 per person, any age. This is a huge discount, but you do need a separate pass for each person in the family who is 3 and older. Last 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.
What Do I Get With The Season Pass?
In addition to unlimited visits, a Tanganyika season pass comes with some other benefits. They may change slightly from year to year, but this is what they were last year:
10% off Gift Shop
10% off Pavilion Deli/Coffee Shop
10% off Special Events like Pumpkins at the Park & Twilight Tour
10% off Birthday Parties
$5 off Admission for guest
I’m really liking that $5 off regular admission for a guest! If you have a family member who might not need a season pass, this is a good discount for that one time they’ll visit the park with you!
Also last year you could add a Guest Season Pass during the sale at a slightly higher (but still discounted) rate which allows you to bring anyone along with you to the park. I haven’t heard yet whether they’ll still offer that option again this year, so stay tuned.
You can purchase the discounted passes online (see the link at the end of this post) or at the park beginning March 1.
Frequent Feeder Passes and Animal Encounters
A regular season pass is only good for unlimited visits throughout the season and does not include tokens for feeding the animals or any paid animal encounters.
However, you can add on a feeder pass. When purchased with the season pass, you will receive a wristband for 5 animal encounters each time you visit.
Here’s an awesome change to the feeder pass that happened last year (Thanks, Skylar!):
From the Tanganyika Wildlife Park website:
“In the past, only one person could use the pass during each visit. Now, the Frequent Feeder gives everyone more access by allowing anyone on your account to share the pass for a total of five animal encounters during the same visit.”
If you choose not to get the feeder pass, you can still pay for animal encounter passes on individual visits. But the feeder pass is a great deal and will save you money if you plan to use it often. (And if you have a large family, the kids could each have a day where they get to wear the wristband.)
Tanganyika Open Dates
The park opens for the season on March 14, 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!
