Annual passes can be given as a gift. Passes are issued unassigned, so there won’t be a name printed on the pass itself. You can gift a physical pass one of two ways.
- At checkout, enter your billing address and then enter the shipping address of your recipient.
- You can order the pass as normal and gift it directly.
Digital gift cards are also available. Digital gift cards have no expiration date and may be redeemed when the current pass expires.
