Are member ticket purchases going to be made available online before tickets are made public?

At what age do kids need there own ticket for the zootunes concerts?

I just read that one child under 12 years of age will be admitted free with an adult paid ticket. The exception is reserved seating, where you have to purchase a ticket for all children and adults.
One child 12 and under is free with each paid adult ticket. So if you have two adults, you can bring in two children 12 and under free with you. But if you are one adult and two children, only one of those kids is free with your adult ticket, and the other kid will need to have their own purchased ticket. Hope that makes sense! It can get a bit complicated, but we're here to help!
