Things to know before your visit:

  • Remember to pack a mask. Masks are required for guests ages six and up. If you don't have a mask, they are available for purchase at the Zoo.
  • Watch for one-way directional signage in some higher-traffic areas of the Zoo. Some indoor animal habitats will not be open at this time.
  • The Cincinnati Zoo is open daily from 10am-5pm. (9am for members.)
  • In an effort to reduce contact points and continue modeling behavior as the Greenest Zoo in America, we have eliminated all paper maps. Instead, a digital version can be accessed via signage throughout the Zoo and a link from your confirmation & pre-visit emails.
  • Please book one reservation date and time per transaction. The 30-minute window is your entry time into the Zoo and we ask that you arrive during that window. Once in the Zoo you can stay as long as you like until close; we do not allow for re-entry at this time.
  • All ticket sales are final. Exchanges are subject to availability and may result in additional charges.

Please Note: Your transaction is NOT complete until you reach the confirmation page stating that your order is complete with a confirmation number.
