Member FAQ
Everything you need to know.



I’m a member. Do I need an online ticket to enter the park?

No. Entry is free for members. Please bring your ID card to the front gate. We are no longer requiring timed online tickets for general admission.

Members do need to schedule a premier tour in advance as these tours are wildly popular, and they do sell out.  To schedule a premier tour, visit our tours page.


Do my guests need an online ticket?

Members and their guests do not need timed online tickets.  Named members can check-in guests covered under their membership, and/or purchase discounted tickets for guests arriving with them who are not covered under the membership.

Who should I name as the 2nd named adult on my membership?

Named adults are non-transferable so it is best for the 2nd named adult to be the person in your household most likely to attend the park without you.


I have a nanny. What’s the best membership for me?

The Household or Deluxe Household memberships can work for you but the nanny must be a named adult on the membership in order for him/her to receive admission when bringing the children to the park without you. The nanny can be listed as the 2nd named adult on the membership or you can purchase an additional named adult for only $40 (restrictions apply).


Do I need to include children under the age of 3 on my membership?

Children aged 2 and under receive free admission to Northwest Trek; therefore, you do not need to include your child on your membership if he/she is age 2 or under. If your child turns 3 years old before your membership expires, you may add a child to your membership (or upgrade, if you’ve purchased a 1+1 membership) at any time.
