What is the best way to purchase/renew my membership?

The "best" method depends on how soon you plan to visit and how soon you wish to use your Guest Admission coupons.  We have four options:

When you purchase/renew in person, you will receive card(s) and Guest Admission coupons immediately.  Our ticket windows are open every day of the year, including all holidays, from 9 a.m. until gates close. 

When you purchase/renew over the phone, your card(s) and Guest Admission coupons will be available for pickup after one hour, if you choose to pickup in person.  If not, a temporary 30-day pass and Guest Admission coupons will be sent by email.  Your membership card will arrive in the mail approximately 4 - 6 weeks after your purchase.  If you do not have an email address, card(s) and Guest Admission coupons will arrive in the mail in approximately 4 - 6 weeks after your purchase.  As part of a system upgrade, renewing members may receive a new card.    

When you purchase/renew online, your card(s) and Guest Admission coupons will be available for pickup after 48 hours from the time of online purchase, if you choose to pickup in person.  If you plan to visit within 30 days, we recommend you stop by any ticket window at either park to purchase/renew in person and receive your membership card(s) and Guest Admission coupons immediately.   If your visit is more than a month away, your card(s) and Guest Admission coupons will arrive in the mail in approximately 4 - 6 weeks after your payment is received.  As part of a system upgrade, renewing members may receive a new card. 

When you purchase/renew by mail, your card(s) and Guest Admission coupons will be available for pickup 3 - 4 weeks from the date you mail your payment, if you choose to pickup in person.  If you plan to visit within 30 days, we recommend you stop by any ticket window at either park to purchase/renew in person and receive your membership card(s) and Guest Admission coupons immediately.   If your visit is more than a month away, your card(s) and Guest Admission coupons will arrive in the mail in approximately 4 - 6 weeks after your payment is received.  As part of a system upgrade, renewing members may receive a new card.
