FAQs for Members


Each member has been mailed a new card with a printed QR code. Your old membership card can be discarded- it will not work on this new kiosk system. If you did not receive the new membership card, please email us at before your next visit.

Instructions for Use

Upon arrival, scan the QR code located on your membership card with the kiosk scanner located at the bottom left of the kiosk. Hold your membership card within a few inches of the scanner and centered on the QR code. You can also take a clear photo of your QR code with your phone and hold your phone up to the scanner. Once the card has been scanned, the gate will open and you can drive through. No ticket or receipt will come out of the kiosk.

The kiosk has an intercom in which you can call a Gabis employee to verify your membership information and they can open the gate remotely. We will do our best to respond to the intercom during all open hours.

We recommend taking a photo of your membership card with your phone. You can then scan the photo of the QR code at the kiosk.

Renewal notifications are sent via email. If you aren’t receiving renewal notifications, please let us know and we will confirm your email address. Note that you cannot renew your membership at the kiosk so please renew in advance.

The best way is to renew online or click the button below.
