The day that Calgary Zoo members have been waiting for has finally arrived! Engage and Inspire members are now able to meet Calgary’s newest, furriest residents – giant pandas Er Shun, Da Mao, Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue.
Engage and Inspire members get a week’s worth of sneak peeks, allowing them to witness all of the pandas’ cuteness first! These members also get to visit the pandas first in the morning. After May 7, Engage and Inspire members will be treated to a members-only preview from 9 – 10 am, up until the end of August.
If you aren’t a member yet, you can visit the giant pandas starting on May 7, 2018, when Panda Passage officially opens to the public. Timed ticketing will be introduced at the beginning of May, allowing visitors the option of picking a specific time in the day to see the giant pandas. These tickets can be selected online, at kiosks located in Alberta Plaza, and the Guest Relations window at the zoo. During the timeframe selected, visitors will have access to a fast track lane, bypassing long lines. Plus, every day of the week, special deals will be available for tickets bought online, such as $5 off per transaction or per ticket.
And in case you didn’t know, any visitor can put the price of their admission ticket towards the purchase of a membership, within 7 days of their visit. And trust us, once you see how adorable the pandas are, you’ll want to visit again and again!
In China, the giant panda is a national treasure and is known as one of the most beloved animals in the world. Give them a visit and help the pandas feel right at home in Calgary.
