You are eligible for the Group Rate if you are:

A group of 10 OR MORE individuals who are 3 years of age and older. Seneca Park Zoo members coming DO NOT count toward the 10 or more in your Group. In this case, they are free because they are members.

Any group of 10 OR MORE individuals who are 3 years of age and older who wish to receive the Group Rate MUST either purchase their tickets online or make a reservation. Click here to purchase tickets online. To make a reservation, please call (585) 336-7219 or e-mail groups@senecazoo.org.
