2018 INDMAS July Field Trip - Indianapolis Zoo

Recommended Posts

Great news everyone - this year we have been able to make accommodations for trip to the Indianapolis Zoo, including a behind the scenes tour of their Oceans area!   It will be a great time.    We are trying to finalize all the details and so we need to put out some feelers to gauge interest and attendance.  The tentative plans are below.  Please reply with the number of each category of tickets you estimate needing as well as a count for the behind the scenes tour.  We may have limited slots on this tour so a count is helpful.      The tour will either be 10:30am or 1:00 pm, please also list which would be better for you so we can try to plan it best we can. 

We will get a group discount rate shown below (regularly $22.45 for adults) as long as we purchase 25 tickets in advance.

Hey Daniel,

This is awesome.  I hope to be off for that date so I can make it.  If we already are zoo members, we won’t need a ticket, correct?

How long is the tour?

 

We are members and could get two in with us as well. Family total would be four and would likely only be able to do am due to naps.

My family are zoo members and want to go as well. 5 total. Would prefer morning since it's less crowded.

Jenn and i are down for 2 for this!

 

We are still short more than a handful of members for the discount and group tours club.  This is a great opportunity and we should not have any reason we can't get the 25 needed for the discount.  Let's go club....lets use these resources the staff works so hard to provide everyone!

The INDMAS Store now has your pre-order tickets available for purchase!!  Please keep a screen shot handy just in case.  INDMAS will purchase all tickets once we have the 25 minimum amount needed.  

Something to consider - I spoke to Sally who is in charge of Oceans.  She mentioned that small children and those in strollers are not permitted on the BTS tour due to safety concerns.  If your child is of the age to be able to listen to and understand instructions, such as stay within the yellow lines, or DO NOT touch this or that....then you should be fine.  My guess is somewhere around 5 or 6 age and up should be okay.  Please do not let this deter you from deciding to go to this Field Trip or not.  IF you are wanting to go BTW and have children....please speak up here and I am sure we can arrange a chaperone or two to accommodate this for everyone.

Let's get those tickets reserved everyone!  This will be a fun day of education, networking, and entertainment for all.  Please check your calendars and participate as much as possible with these events that are put on by INDMAS and our local participating businesses.

10...and they would be done back to back to ensure Sally wouldn't be there all day on her day off for us ;v)

So if we have seasonal passes we don't pay to get in or park and can still do the BST correct?

Awesome Keith!  The store is ready with the discounted tickets...so everyone can now prepay as we need 25 to get the discounted rate.  INDMAS will make one purchase of the tickets and either forward names to will call or have a designated meet up time at the entrance.

Dont forget club....you MUST purchase your discounted tickets through our INDMAS store if you plan on attending this event.  The club will submit payment to the INDY zoo on 7/19/18...so if you do not pay on our website, you will be required to pay full price at the gates.

we have started a spreadsheet...but unfortunately they will not count towards the 25.  we must "purchase" 25 in a group lot to qualify for the discount

That's what I was wondering. That clears it up.

Staff is discussing that, but I dont see a reason why we cant hit the 25.  This is a great opportunity and am hoping people are just waiting to pay through the indmas store when time gets closer to make sure their schedules permit.  

The tickets MUST be purchased through the indmas store to receive the discounted rate.  INDMAS will make a final payment on July 19th, so all payments must be in by then.  Any payments that come in after July 19th will be refunded back to the sender.
