Not only do annual pass holders get a great deal when purchasing in April, but they also get access to the park for 362 days of the year. Additionally, annual pass holders get to enjoy most everything the park has to offer at no additional cost. Experience unforgettable activities such as unlimited train and pony rides (seasonal), cool off at the splash pad, or go gold panning and shop at the Treasure House Rock and Gem Shop. Passholders can even pull classic handcarts—just like the Pioneers did when first entering the Salt Lake Valley.

The fun doesn’t stop there—guests with annual passes get access to seasonal events on bonus days such as the Baby Animal Celebration (April 13th), Train Day (May 10th), Huntsman Day (June 11th), Mountain Man Camp (June 14-15), and Liberty Day (July 4th). Many of these days kids will love as there is usually a candy cannon that will go off. And when hunger inevitably strikes, indulge in a sweet treat from the park’s famous ZCMI Store, or for a real indulgence, try the delicious and unforgettable donuts and Dole Whip ice cream located at Brigham’s Donuts. Passholders can enjoy 10% off at select retail sites.
