It is not possible to pay the invoice with a gift certificate from Dyreparken, and an invoice can be payed with either credit card or by online banking.

You will find the payment deadline in the email you receive after the reservation has been made, and at Min side (My page) on dyreparken.no. The reservation will be cancelled automatically if payment is not done within due date, and the reserved products will be available for sale at dyreparken.no. It is therefor important that you pay your reservation before it expires. When payment is done you will recieve a booking confirmation, and you can download tickets from Min side (My page) og find your order in our app. You can also order additional products after the reservation has been paid.

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 upgraded/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 Zoo. 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 that 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. Misuse may lead to cancellation of the ticket. A ticket like this is only valid within the year printet on the ticket, and an unused ticket can not be transfered to the next year. Some of these tickets can be upgraded to an extra day, please contact us with you ticket number to check if this is possible for your ticket. The ticket will be marked with a price level between 1 and 7, indicating the period the ticket can be used. At this page you can check the validity.

Annual pass
An annual pass Dyreparken is valid an unlimited number of times between January 1st to December 31st in the year you have booked for.
Annual pass for Begge Parker (Both Parks) can be used an unlimited number of times to both the Zoo (January 1st to December 31st) and Water Park (Easter holidy until autumn holiday).

Season pass to Dyreparken (the zoo) or Badelandet (Water Park) is valid an unlimited number of times in a given period (specified on your tickets, the dates may vary from year to year).

Check our openings hours, as we operate with different opening hours throughout the year, with varying number of attractions, stores, and eateries open.

An annual pass/season tickets is 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 amount paid for the pass/tickets will not be refunded.
Each annual pass holder must have their own pass, which also applies to children ages 0-2 years old. By purchasing an annual pass up until the day before the child turns 3 years old, will warrant a free pass for the rest of the year.
