Buying tickets to visit the Zoo in advance? Good idea as this will allow for a simple and speedy check-in.

Be sure to check out our website for our hours of operation, the status of attractions & services, and the latest announcements.

Simply purchase your tickets online and present your e-ticket at the zoo entrance. You can choose to show your e-ticket on your mobile device, or print them. Advance sale admission tickets are valid for general admission only, but not for all special ticketed events.
