When you select an entrance time, you are selecting the time you can arrive at the Zoo. The 30-minute time-frame printed on your ticket is your admission window. Once you are inside the Zoo, you can explore our gardens, outdoor exhibits, concession offerings and gift shop at your own pace.
A limited number of BIG TIME tickets are available for each Zoo entrance time for purchase during your reservation process. You cannot arrive at the Zoo prior to your ticket entrance time, but you can visit BIG TIME any time after you arrive at the Zoo. Please note that the line for BIG TIME will close at 4:45 pm daily.
