Welcome! We're excited to see you at the Akron Zoo. Here are some things to remember about reserving tickets for your visit to the Akron Zoo.

  • Your ticket is for a specific date and arrival time.
  • The system will default to the current date and next available arrival time, but you can select the date and arrival time that is best for you. Please select "Other Date" or "Other Time" to make these changes.
  • If your preferred arrival time does not appear it means that arrival time is sold out and no longer available.
  • The time selected is the EARLIEST time you can arrive on the day of your visit. You can arrive at that time or later, but no earlier than the time selected. 
  • For example, if the time printed on your ticket said 12:00 p.m. (noon), you can enter the park at noon or any time after that. You are unable to arrive before noon.
  • The zoo is open from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The latest admission into the park is 3:30 p.m. The park will close for the evening at 4:00 p.m.
  • The zoo opens at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesdays for vulnerable populations.
  • Please do not arrive to the Welcome Center's plaza before your admittance time. We are unable to admit earlier admission than the time printed on your ticket.
  • In compliance with local and state ordinances, masks are required at the Akron Zoo. All guests, ages 10 and older, are required to wear a face covering over the nose, mouth, and chin when inside the zoo.
  • All indoor buildings are now open with a limited capacity. All play areas are currently closed. 
  • The Boma goat yard and Conservation Carousel are now open daily for cracker sales and carousel rides (weather permitting). Disinfection happens regularly. 
  • The Pride of Africa trains are closed for the season and will reopen in April.
  • Winter Season Notice: Some animals may not be on habitat or are given access indoors due to weather conditions.
