Q:

hi there, on their website, an "observer fee" is listed. if i buy a groupon for my child (aged 5), will i as an adult also need a ticket? would the toddler brother need an observer ticket? or is this strictly a drop off program? thanks for your help!

Emily G.  asked on  Sep 11, 2012

A:

Sea Lion Splash is a 2 1/2 hour program where parents have the option of dropping of their child and returning at the end of the program or purchasing an Observer ticket to tag along in the program. As an Observer, you will have the opportunity to observe the education and interaction throughout the program and be allowed to take STILL photography from a designated area. No video taping is allowed at any point of the program. Our staff also takes photos of the experience that are available for purchase following the program. The Observer fee is $25 per person plus tax (2 and under are free but must supervised by an adult and will not have the opportunity to interact with the animals at Oceans of Fun).

Q:

Do the family members bringing him to the class have to pay for zoo admission?

Rachel D.  asked on  Sep 11, 2012

A:

Program participants have zoo admission included in the price of the program. Parking is NOT included. You will receive an Admission Ticket after making your reservation which will allow access and admission of the program participant only. Show this document to the zoo Admission Gate and they will process payment for other passengers and parking at that time. If you choose to become an Observer in the program ($25 fee), your zoo admission would be included with the Observer Ticket.

We are excited that you have taken the opportunity to join us in our Sea Lion Splash program this fall.

If your redemption code was one of those affected, Groupon has issued you a new one. Please log into your Groupon account (www.groupon.com/mygroupons) to retrieve your new redemption code, then enter that new code to complete your reservation. Thank you for your patience.
