Member Reservations

As we move into a new phase of easing restrictions that were necessary due to the pandemic, we are happy to announce that as of Monday, August 2, 2021, Members will no longer need to make timed ticket reservations to visit the Zoo on weekdays. Monday through Friday, Members can simply come to the Zoo whenever it is convenient and show your membership card and ID upon entry.

We will still require timed ticket reservations for Saturdays and Sundays, to support social distancing for everyone’s comfort, especially those who are not yet vaccinated. We have also noted over the past year that timed ticketing has had a positive impact on the guest experience during our busiest days.

Non-members will still be required to purchase timed tickets in advance no matter the day of their visit. Members can reserve weekend timed tickets one month in advance of a visit.

We are dedicated to providing the best possible experience for you and your family and we appreciate your patience as we continue to evaluate the policies and procedures we put into place during the pandemic.


How To Make A Reservation:

  • Click the “Make Reservation” button below
  • Current Zoo Members, sign in or create an account (using the email associated with your membership) using the buttons in the top right-hand corner of the purchase page to receive your 100% ticket discount for your membership level. NOTE: The discount will not appear until AFTER YOU CLICK “ADD TO CART.”
  • Use “Member Adult,” “Member Child,” and “Member Under 2” ticket types after choosing your visit date and entry time period to receive your discount. If you have additional guests, beyond what’s included on your membership, purchase regular general admission tickets for those guests. Your member discount will be automatically applied to those tickets at checkout.
  • Bring your valid Zoo Membership card, Member timed tickets, and valid photo ID for entry. Member tickets are non-transferable and must match the current level of Zoo Membership.
