HOW DO I BOOK TICKETS?

You can use our secure website to purchase tickets, print your email order confirmation and bring it with you to show on arrival. If you don't have a printer, simply make a note of the booking reference number or show it on your phone.
Online tickets must be made at least one hour before arrival on the day of your visit.
You'll select an arrival time and you can stay until the Park's closing time.
Popular weekend and holiday dates will book up quickly in advance.
You will receive a confirmation email to confirm your visit date, this is your proof of purchase. If you arrive at the park without your booking reference or tickets, we can look up your booking by your email address, this may slow down transaction times at the ticket lane.
Can I pay on arrival?
Yes you can purchase a ticket on the gate, on arrival at the park. However, on busy days (Summer, Easter and school holidays) this does not guarantee entry, so it is always better to buy a ticket in advance.
What do Safari Day Tickets include?

What do All Inclusive Tickets include?
These tickets include:
- Admission to the Road Safari and Foot Safari

When will the next tickets go on sale?
We will aim to have the new ticket dates on sale around 10-14 days before the current date period ends.
We will post announcements about each ticket release on our social media and our website.
Can I buy concessionary disabled tickets?
'Disabled and Carer' tickets are each valid for one person who has a registered disability PLUS one accompanying carer (a carer must be 16+ years of age and be travelling in the same vehicle).
If you require tickets for a person with a registered disability who needs two carers and you have documentation to support this requirement, then you can purchase a ticket for an 'Additional Carer' at the ticket lane on arrival.
If you are a person with a registered disability (who does not require or have an accompanying carer), you can pay for a 'Disabled individual' ticket
Supporting documentation is required for a registered disability, to be shown to the cashier on arrival. This can be in the form of a blue badge, DWP, PIP or DLA letter, or a letterhead communication from a registered care home.
If you are unable to provide valid proof, then an online booking will be refunded and a full price ticket will be offered in it's place.
We also accept the Access Card (sometimes referred to as the CredAbility Card or a Nimbus Card).
DO I NEED TO PRINT MY TICKET?
If you don't have a printer, you can make a note of your booking reference or show your confirmation email on your phone.
Or we can look up your ticket from your booking reference. This may slow down the transaction time at the gate.

- What areas of the Park are open?
During the peak summer season, the park can get more busy.
Bank holiday weekends during summer are generally the busiest days and you can expect to experience delays in the Road Safari, as well as queues for most attractions, catering and toilets. The Road Safari circuit may take between 60-120 minutes to complete.
During school holidays and weekends in hotter weather, the park also gets busier than usual.
During the winter season, or off peak (during school terms times) and mid-week the park is quieter, with less customers overall meaning you will find queue times are shorter, or non-existent in some areas of the park. The Road Safari may take around 45-90 minutes to complete.
