Discounted admission tickets can be purchased at the zoo’s front gate with proof of Bexar County residency.

“This deep discount is the zoo’s way of showing gratitude towards residents of San Antonio; allowing for even more people to learn how the zoo combines conservation, animal care, and education in securing a future for wildlife,” zoo officials said in an email announcement.

There are a lot of new experiences to check out at the zoo this summer, including a new 4D theater that lets audiences enjoy movies with thrill-enhancing special effects like water mist and tremors beneath their feet. Additional special effects include bubbles, snow, scent, FX lighting, seat vibrations and wind.

New culinary offerings are also available at San Antonio Zoo with expanded menus for restaurants and the option for line-skipping mobile ordering.

San Antonio Zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week.
