Dallas Zoo offers a cool deal after another record-breaking year
Dec 31, 2013

Admission just $5 during January and February for Penguin Days

The temperature is dropping and so is the price of admission to the Dallas Zoo. Throughout January and February, everyone age 3 and up can visit the African penguins (as well as all of the other animals) for just $5 per person.

There’s even a new resident to visit: Mochila, in the new giant anteater habitat in ZooNorth.

The special pricing is the zoo’s way of thanking the community for its support throughout 2013.

“Penguin Days has been a big success for the Dallas Zoo and our guests. We’ve had some great weather during these months the past few years, making the $5 admission price an incredible value for those looking for a wildlife adventure,” said Sean Greene, vice president of guest experiences at the Dallas Zoo. “Penguin Days has significantly increased our attendance during the winter months, and it’s a great way for guests to experience the ‘new’ Dallas Zoo.’ ”

Even if it’s chilly, the special pricing offers a chance to enjoy the warmth of the nation’s most venomous Herpetarium, the creepy-crawlies of Bug U!, facts about great apes at the Jake L. Hamon Gorilla Conservation Research Station, and to hear the trumpeting of an elephant in the Simmons Safari Base Camp at the Giants of the Savanna.

Children age 2 and younger and Dallas Zoo members are always free. Parking is $8 per vehicle, or take the DART Red Line straight to the Zoo entrance to avoid traffic and parking fees.
