Visitor Guidelines

Know what you can expect for your next visit

TICKETS: Tickets purchased via the above link do not require timed reservations. Simply present your ticket (electronic or a printed copy) at Admissions when you arrive.

DOLPHIN PRESENTATIONS: Audience sizes will be limited inside the Ascension St. Vincent Dolphin Pavilion to ensure our guests can practice social distancing. If you want to attend a dolphin presentation, ask for a ticket at the gate.

FACE MASKS: We want you to be safe, so our staff will wear masks and we have some new guidelines on visitors wearing masks at the Zoo. In following Mayor Joe Hogsett's guidelines guests and members must have a mask with them upon entering the Zoo. Visitors are required to wear a face covering to enter all buildings including restrooms. In addition, the Zoo will require masks to enter the aviaries, participate in interactions at Tembo Camp, giraffe feeds, flamingo feeds and Flamingo Mingle as social distancing is not possible at these activities. Masks are required to be worn in outdoor areas where social distancing of six feet is not possible. Masks are available for purchase at the front gate for $1.

PURCHASES AT THE ZOO: All transactions at the Zoo are cashless for now.

FOOD AND BEVERAGE SERVICE: Café on the Commons is open now, and masks are required for service. To maintain social distancing, please look for signs marking one-way entrance and exit. Additionally, food service is available at Nana's Kitchen, located on the main pathway near Flights of Fancy. Wrapped individual cutlery and condiments will be provided. Water fountains will be turned off, but the Zoo will have water bottle filling stations available inside the Oceans building and Ascension St. Vincent Dolphin Gallery. Please bring your own reusable water bottle. Picnic tables are located outside the Zoo and families can enjoy bringing their lunch to eat outside either before entering the Zoo or after.

SOCIAL DISTANCING AND ONE-WAY PATHS: Groups of visitors will be expected to follow the six feet of social distancing guidance. You'll see clear markings on the ground throughout the Zoo to help with proper social distancing between groups. Indoor exhibits will offer one-way traffic only with each area monitored and limitations of how many guests can be in the space at one time.

LIMITED CAPACITY: The Zoo sits on 64 acres of outdoor space. We will follow the capacity and safety guidelines created by the state. We'll also electronically monitor in real-time the number of guests in spaces like White River Gardens, Oceans, and the Simon Skjodt International Orangutan Center.

ADDITIONAL CLEANING: The Zoo will be sanitized and disinfected daily. A specially trained cleaning crew will conduct continuous rounds of disinfecting all high contact areas like restrooms, trash cans, picnic tables and handrails. The use of Virex, which is a one-step, quaternary-based disinfectant cleaner, will be used to clean and disinfect. We've also added more hand sanitizer stations throughout the Zoo.

WHAT'S CLOSED: Playgrounds, rides and overnight visits will be closed for now.

HEALTH CHECKS: Zoo guests are urged to take their temperatures and perform health checks on their entire party before coming to the Zoo. If a guest is exhibiting any flu or cold-like symptoms or a temperature of 100.4 or higher, we request them to remain at home. Zoo staff and volunteers will be monitored daily for temperature.
