Vulture Venture + Flight Show Combo

Use this online form to book your Vulture Venture Encounter AND Flight Show combination tickets. All Raptor Encounters include complimentary Raptor Trail Admission, so please feel free to arrive early to experience our permanent exhibits and enjoy any docent programming offered the day of your visit. Please note that this combination ticket is ONLY available on Sundays between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

To choose the date of your visit, please click the "Other dates" link below the calendar icon. On the calendar pop-up window, click on the date you will attend. Please note that on Sundays, we only offer the Flight Show at 11 am.

If you have a complimentary pass with/without a code or have other questions, please call Visitor Services at (704) 875-6521 ext.107 to speak to a Visitor Services Associate.

Please arrive half an hour early so that you won't miss the Flight Show. Online sales for this combination end at MIDNIGHT the night before the show, and in-person ticket sales at the Visitor Center end 10 minutes before the show begins.

Gates to amphitheater open 30 minutes before show time. Ticketed customers should be in their seats by 15 minutes before show time. Because the show is FREE, staff will then "fill the house" in order to offer this experience to as many patrons as possible. Unfortunately, due to the terrain and flight paths of the birds at our amphitheater, we can only accommodate one wheelchair. Electric chairs will find the Raptor Trail particularly hazardous and are not recommended for use on CRC's bumpy trails. Strollers are not permitted in amphitheater. There are 80 seats per show.

The FREE Talons Flight Show program is made possible through a generous grant from the Duke Energy Foundation.
