Spider Pavilion and Garden Admission

This ticket permits entry into South Coast Botanic Garden and the Spider Pavilion. **This ticket includes your Garden Admission. You do not need a separate General Admission ticket. 

Know before you go

In order for every attendee to receive the best quality interpretation, the time listed on your ticket is your time to enter the pavilion.

You may arrive at the Garden up to 30 minutes before your scheduled ticket time. Please check-in at the Pavilion approximately 10-15 minutes before your scheduled ticket time. This is to allow you time to enjoy the Widow Wall and interpretive signage prior to entering the pavilion. You will have exactly 30 minutes in the pavilion to enjoy the experience. Due to the important information received prior to entering, late arrivals may have to be rescheduled to a later time.

Infants 1 year old and younger do not need a ticket, however, strollers are not allowed in the pavilion. There will be designated stroller parking outside of the pavilion for your convenience. 


Garden Members receive free general admission and a discount on Spider tickets. Both discounts will be applied after you've selected your tickets and clicked "Add to Cart." Please make sure you are logged in BEFORE adding the tickets to your cart, or the member discount will not apply. 


Cancellation Policy: 

Tickets may be rescheduled or canceled up to 48 hours before your event time. Cancellation or rescheduling tickets will not be possible after that window of time. Please email guestservices@scbgf.org if you have any questions.
