Advance purchase required.

Enjoy the Zoo at your own pace during this program for Zoo fans that want a quiet, exclusive experience. Participants will enter the Zoo an hour before we open to the public and take a guided Zoo Walk to orient themselves in our space.

Guided Zoo Walks will include animal information provided by Zoo docents and staff about our monthly theme and call attention to sensory stops on Zoo grounds like our accessible playground or the Snow Leopard Cub House presented by PNC. Program participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and see all their favorite animals as the group moves through the zoo ahead of the crowds.

The Zoo is certified Sensory Inclusive by KultureCity and offers FREE accommodations for all guests with sensory issues during regular hours. Sensory Bags are available for families to checkout free of charge the day of their visit.  Learn more here.
