Member Exclusive Hours of ZooBoo

Join us for our special members-only hours of ZooBoo Oct. 8, from noon-2pm. Admission to ZooBoo is free for members.

Member tips!

  • Come early in the day: The Zoo opens at 9am with ZooBoo festivities beginning at 2pm. Squeeze in visits with your favorite animals early in the day before enjoying ZooBoo activities!
  • Don’t let weather worry you: With Pumpkin Town under cover and plenty of Zoo buildings spread out, the chance of rain will impact crowds, but not your Zoo experience.
  • Visit earlier in the month: If you’d like to come on a weekend during ZooBoo, the earlier weekends in October typically have smaller crowds!
Know What to Expect for Your Next Visit

The Zoo is open at 100 percent capacity, including all buildings. Masks are not required at the Zoo, though we recommend that members and guests wear masks in our indoor areas, including restrooms.

December 3 & 10 • 10am-noon • Reservations required
Members Only Breakfast with Santa

Join us for a fun-filled morning of merriment and holiday cheer, complete with a full breakfast, one free photo with Santa per family, a live and interactive holiday music performance, holiday-themed activities and one-on-one time with the jolly old elf himself.

Be lively and quick to sign up for this popular members-only event – it will sell out!

Reservations open Oct. 3. To order tickets, call the Membership office at 317-630-2046, from 8am to 5pm Monday-Friday. Tickets are $30 for member adults and $25 for member children.

Jiffy Lube's environmental commitment

Before Jiffy Lube came along, over 70% of all oil changes in Indiana were done by individual car owners, many of whom would then dump the old oil wherever they could. That percentage is now closer to 20% plus Jiffy Lube provides a drop off spot for waste oil generated by these “do-it-yourselfers,” further reducing the impact of waste oil dumping. Jiffy Lube collects and stores the waste oil until it is picked up by recyclers/re-refiners, helping keep our waterways clean.
