This place was great seeing all the wild animals going through the park. Rhinos were close to car. And they were running I was just a little nervous for that one.

Hi there. We hope to arrive at your parks opening on a Thursday in June. My girlfriend and I each have our own Miami Explorer Pass. How do I use it to get prompt entry into your park? Do I need to park first and go to an office? Or just drive up to main gate and show our passes while in the car? Thank you.
