Timed-Entry Tickets for Non-Members

What you should know before you visit

We are extremely excited to be reopening to the public on June 28. Special measures are in place to ensure everyone’s safety.
Here’s what you can expect:

New admission process

  • Timed-entry tickets are required. The number of tickets available will be set to prevent crowding. You will either print and bring your paper ticket or have the ticket on your phone.
  • When you arrive, look for the blue sign that says Timed Ticketholders and Members with Reservations.
  • Your ticket allows you to enter anytime within the time stated on your ticket. If you arrive outside of your entry window, you will be asked to wait until an opening becomes available.
  • Face coverings are required for all guests over the age of two. If you or your child cannot wear a mask for health reasons, a face shield will be provided.
  • You are expected to keep social distance and will be reminded with the markers you will find throughout the Zoo.
  • There will be a one-way path through the Zoo. The total distance of the walk is 1.3 miles.
