Tickets are now available for the Pokémon Go Safari Zone that is being held in Philadelphia. The event will run from May 8 to May 10 and will be held at Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Tickets are first-come, first-served, so if you are interested be sure to snap them up quickly. Standard tickets will be $12, and early access tickets will be $18, plus taxes and fees. Early access ticket holders will be able to access event gameplay early and receive two additional hours of gameplay.

A City Explorer Pass will also be available for $8. The City Explorer Pass will last the full weekend, from Friday, May 8, at 6am to Sunday, May 10, at 1pm ET, and will provide additional benefits to attendees, including:

For those interested in purchasing tickets, you need to open your Pokémon Go application and open up your main menu by clicking the PokéBall in the center. From there, you should see a small events icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. Click it, and you should see a list of all the upcoming events announced in the game. You should go to a brand new page where you should see the Pokémon Go Safari Zone Philadelphia event. Click on it, and you can grab your tickets.

You can buy tickets for any day of the event, but may only purchase a ticket for one day. You can also buy an Explorers Pass, to get even more ways to interact with the world of Pokémon.

Visitors to the event will have a chance to encounter Voltorb, Alolan Sandshrew, Unown P, Bronzor, Rufflet, and more in the park during the event period, and there will even be a chance to catch Mr. Mime, despite that Pokémon usually only appearing in Europe. Shiny Voltorb will also be available to catch, in a blue and white color scheme.
