NEW! Timed Ticketing Requirement

All guests will need to purchase or reserve tickets online, even if they are already Zoo members.
We recognize that this is a change for our current members and do apologize for any inconvenience.
However, in order to keep the number of entries per hour below 200, we will be employing timed ticketing as an added safety precaution. We appreciate your cooperation and support! 

Reserve your tickets online up to two weeks in advance for contact-free and expedited admissions!

 Before you come and see us, please review our new policies and procedures so that you know what to expect! Learn More>>
