Veterans Day

November 11, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

This Saturday, November 11th, the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park will honor all veterans, active-duty military personnel and their immediate families with free admission* to the NEW Zoo and to the Neil Anderson Canopy Tour on Veterans Day. Free coffee and cookies will also be provided to our guests of honor while supplies last.

The NEW Zoo is currently open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. – including on all upcoming holidays! Late fall is a great time to visit, as many animals tend to be more active in cooler weather. If you’re feeling chilly during your walk around the zoo, you can always pop into the Mayan Restaurant and warm up with a cup of hot cocoa or coffee. The restaurant is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. except on the following dates, when it will be closed: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day. On those five dates, snacks and drinks will be available for sale in the gift shop.

The Neil Anderson Canopy Tour currently opens daily at 9:00 a.m., with the final tour departing at 3:30 p.m. Fat tire bike rentals are also available at the Adventure Park Base Camp Building daily starting at 9:00 a.m. whenever trails are open. The Adventure Park’s zip lines, climbing wall, and ropes challenge course are closed for the season.

*Special free admission discounts are available only at the door and not through advance online ticket sales.
