No, you can arrive anytime after your ticket start time. For example, if you purchase tickets for the 9am-10am slot but realize you won’t be able to arrive until 10:30am, that’s okay! You can come anytime during the event and we’ll still be able to get you in. There’s no need to change the time on your ticket.
Having standardized arrival windows, with set numbers of tickets available online for each slot, makes it much easier for you to get a parking space! Our years of experience planning zoo-wide events have shown us that planned arrivals help us better plan for parking and avoid the chaos that can occur if “nearly everyone” arrives at the same time. It’s also faster for you to get in and out of the zoo itself, and helps us avoid long lines. In short, it’s a better experience for us all!
You do not have to buy tickets online in advance and can definitely just come to the event that day. People with pre-purchased tickets will be able to enter through our Event Gate with a quick-scanning process. Individuals buying tickets on arrival just need to enter through the Visitor Center main entrance building to buy your tickets there.
