How it Works

  • Purchase the card and pick it up at the San Diego Zoo or Safari Park to start your adventure.  Simply purchase online, print your voucher, and bring it the Guest Services window at either park to activate your card.  Upon activation, you will have three full consecutive days to visit any of the attractions in the pass! 
  • Swipe your card and go right in to over 45 attractions. Just present your card at the ticket window for admission between opening and 5:30 PM every day. The staff will swipe it and you’re ready to go. Look for VIP extras and special offers at gifts shops and cafes too!

Plan ahead online, or use the free guidebook to decide where to go once you’re there. Either way, having an idea of where you want to go will help you get the most out of your pass. Make sure you read the details for each attraction to find out specific admission information and if reservations are required.


How do I activate my card?
Once you receive your Go San Diego Cards, you have up to one year to use them.  The time only starts when you activate it for the first attraction visit.  At your first attraction entry, your card will be activated and then you have three full calendar days to use the pass.

Is there a time cut off on my card?
The Go San Diego Card is valid for admission from the time an attraction opens in the morning through 5:30 pm. You do not need to leave the attraction by 5:30, just be in the door by then and you can stay as late as they are open.  Theme parks offer in and out privileges if you have children and plan to leave and come back in the same day.

Are cards ‘days’ good for 24 hours or days of the week?
Days of the week. For example, if you activated your card on a Tuesday, whether you did it at 9 AM or 5 pm, Tuesday’s usage counts as one day and does not extend into Wednesday.  We encourage guests to start their day early to maximize their savings.
