Why do guests need a reservation to visit the park?

In order to manage capacity, maintain physical distancing and to help ensure a safe and fun experience at the park, all guests are required to make a reservation prior to visiting.

How does the reservation process work?

To make a reservation, you must have a ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass. 
 
If you do not already have a ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass, you must purchase one before making a reservation. You will be prompted to make a reservation during the process of purchasing a ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass.

  •  Guests can purchase and make a reservation for same-day tickets if there is inventory available
  •  Single-day tickets are date specific, so your reservation to visit is included automatically when you choose the date of your ticket
  •  Guests can make a reservation on the same day of a planned visit if there is inventory available

 

 

If you have an existing ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass, you must make a reservation prior to visiting the park. We have reserved daily capacity for our valued Pass Members and Fun Card holders. Guests can make a reservation on the same day of a planned visit if there is inventory available. To make a reservation if you have an existing ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass: 

 

  1. 1. Click here or go to the site homepage and click the "Reserve Now" button
  2. 2. Identify yourself as either a ticket, Fun Card, or Annual Pass holder
  3. 3. Select the date you would like to visit
  4. 4. Enter your ticket, Fun Card, or Annual Pass barcode number and email address to confirm your reservation

 

 

Once you receive your reservation confirmation via email, you must bring that confirmation along with your single-day ticket, Fun Card, or Annual Pass to enter the park.

 

Do I need reservations for anything else other than my ticket, Fun Card or Annual Pass?

Guests purchasing premium experiences (dining, animal interactions) will need to make a reservation for the date of their premium experience in addition to the reservation required to enter the park.  


Please click here to reserve a date for your premium experience by entering your Ticket or Pass barcode.
