​​​​Save Time and Money on Your Visit

This will be an epic year at the Indianapolis Zoo! Lock in the lowest ticket price by purchasing your tickets in advance online. Save more the earlier tickets are purchased and by selecting days that traditionally have a lower attendance. Purchasing tickets in advance also allows you to avoid the ticket windows when you visit. Admission prices will never fall below today's listed price, but they may increase the longer you wait to buy so purchase your tickets today
