NEW Zoo & Adventure Park: Mother’s Day at the zoo

Join us for Mother’s Day at the Zoo on Sunday, May 8th, when each mom will receive free  admission to the Zoo on her special day. Moms can also choose a free plant, courtesy of Wery’s  Sweet Summer Bloomers, while supplies last, and get a bag of tasty candy on arrival.  

The Dog House will be onsite serving up their famously fresh cheese curds, along with burgers  and brats, so come hungry! You can also enjoy a free ride on the Endangered Species Carousel between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. (weather permitting). 

We strongly encourage guests to purchase tickets in advance for all members of your party – EXCEPT for the moms and for kids under 3. When purchasing tickets online, you  must choose a 30-minute arrival window. You can come anytime during the arrival window listed  on your ticket and stay at the Zoo as long as you like (until closing time!). Limited tickets will  also be available at the doors, and Zoo Pass Members can arrive anytime during the day and  follow your usual entrance procedure.  

The NEW Zoo will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on May 8th, and gifts for moms will be  available while supplies last. The Adventure Park remains closed but will open for the season  soon.
