Options for purchasing a Zoo Membership as a Gift:

There are several ways you can purchase your gift membership, depending on if you are buying for yourself or someone else. See the most common choices below. Please note that several methods require the use of the promo code: HOL21.  

E-Gift Cards (a digital gift card) are the most flexible and convenient choice when buying a membership for someone else. Our E-Gift Card is a pre-loaded gift card with the amount necessary to purchase a specific membership level. It is easy to buy online and flexible because the 12-month membership doesn’t start until your gift recipient redeems the E-Gift Card at the Zoo on their first visit.  We email the E-Gift Card to you at the time of purchase; it is then easily forwarded to your gift recipient or printed out. On their first visit to the Zoo, they may redeem the E-Gift Card and we’ll activate the membership in their name.

See the membership levels below. You automatically get $5.00 off the standard prices listed below if you purchase Nov 1 – Dec 31, 2021. If their E-Gift Card is among the first 1,500 redeemed, your gift recipient also receives one (1) FREE plush toy.

Prefer not to buy online? You can also call us at (502) 459-2287 or visit the Zoo during regular office hours, daily 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. and reference promo code: HOL21. 

Please note: gift cards can not be mailed or purchased over the phone.
