Tickets to the Zoo / Water Park
Tickets to the parks are valid only for the dates you have chosen during the booking process. Multiple-day tickets are always valid consecutive days. Tickets can be upgrader/changed to other dates the same year on My Page (Min Side) or in the ticket booths / Guest Services for a fee. By changing multiple-day tickets forward in time, we always change the first day of the ticket, and the remaining days will be valid for the consecutive days following the new date. Upgrading to an additional day will always mean a consecutive day.
It is important that you treat your online ticket as a security paper, and make sure it is not copied or printed multiple times. If Dyreparken has reason to believe misuse/forgery has taken place, e.g. copying tickets, you may be asked to show ID. We therefore ask you to bring your payment card or other valid photo ID to the Park. Entrance tickets are personal, and one entrance ticket cannot be used by multiple persons.
Even if you always can print a new copy of the ticket, you may be refused entry if someone else has used your ticket to enter earlier in the day. The ticket thus is only valid for the number of times/days specified on the ticket. Any attempt of misuse/forging tickets will be considered as document forgery and be reported to the police.
If you have received a ticket marked “Invitert” or “Samarbeidspartner”, please note that these cannot be sold, as they are free tickets.
Season tickets to the Zoo and Amusement Park is valid an unlimited number of times between January 1st to December 31st in the year you have booked for.

Check our openings hours, as we operate with different opening hours throughout the year, with varying number of attractions, stores, and eateries open.
Season tickets are personal and may only be used by the owner of the card. Any misuse of season tickets will be lead to a cancellation of the card in the current year, and may in some cases lead to police charges. The season ticket will not be refunded.
Each season ticket holder must have their own season ticket, which also applies to children ages 0-2 years old. By purchasing a season ticket up until the day before the child turns 3 years old, will warrant a free season ticket for the rest of the year.
