Reduced-price admission tickets for Military, College Students, or Discovery World Members may be purchased online, but guests will be asked to provide the qualifying ID or membership card upon check-in.

Reduced-price admission tickets for Access and ASTC guests are not available online and must be purchased in-person at Discovery World’s Admissions Desk.

  • Access tickets are available for Wisconsin residents who present a Wisconsin EBT card, along with a valid ID, will receive admission at $5/person for up to five (5) individuals in their party.
  • Your family qualifies if you are a Wisconsin resident that participates in Wisconsin Works, WIC, My WI Childcare, Wisconsin Quest, FoodShare, BadgerCare, or Medicaid. Valid ID Required.

All tickets are non-refundable and non-returnable. We are unable to issue exchanges or refunds after a purchase has been made. This is including but not limited to lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed tickets. Tickets will be emailed to you upon the completion of your order.

A valid admission ticket that is purchased online shall become invalid upon the expiration of the time and/or date stated on the ticket. Admission tickets purchased online may only be used for admission during the selected time and/or day that was selected during checkout.

Admission tickets will be accepted for entry any time between 9:00am-4:00pm on the day selected during purchase. Visit length will not be limited. We recommend arriving by 2:00pm, at the latest, as Discovery World closes at 4:00pm.

Resales of any admission tickets without prior and express authorization from Discovery World are strictly prohibited. Admission tickets cannot be transferred, refunded, or exchanged. For guests’ safety, all children must be accompanied by a chaperone age 16 or older.

Discovery World closes at 4:00pm, unless otherwise stated. All vehicles must be removed from Discovery World’s underground parking garage by 4:15pm. There is no overnight parking. Any vehicle left in the garage after 4:15pm will remain locked in the garage until the next time Discovery World is open.
