Membership Terms & Conditions

About Your Membership

Memberships may not be shared by more than one household. All adults named on the card, and the quantity of children covered (under age 18) must reside in the same household. Memberships are not transferable and are only valid for the individuals named on the card. Any additional visitor not covered by your membership will be charged the current admission fee.

Park entry is on a first-come, first-served basis for Members and all park guests. Children and/or guest(s) will not be admitted unless they are accompanied by an adult named on the card. Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Additional guests will be charged the current admission fee.

Discounts and benefits are subject to change at any time.

If you forget your Membership card, we will honor one courtesy lookup/replacement (available only at Bronx Zoo, NY Aquarium, Central Park Zoo); and any additional replacements for forgotten/lost/stolen cards will be done for a card fee. However, due to the technology of our membership processing, this replacement will INVALIDATE your prior cards. PLEASE NOTE: lookups cannot be done at parking, and a valid membership card must be presented upon arrival or there will be a charge for parking. Parking fees are non-refundable.
