Penguin Discount Days at the Zoo

Posted: 12/03/2013
 Now through February 28, 2014, Knoxville Zoo is offering half-price admission during Penguin Discount Days!

Don't worry, black tie isn't required; just don a little winter attire and come see why winter is a great time to visit the zoo. Many of the zoo's animals enjoy the crisp weather and are more active on cooler days. On days when the temperature drops below 40 degrees, some animals will be moved to their indoor enclosures, but even on the coldest days of the year visitors can still see elephants, gorillas, penguins, reptiles, chimpanzees and bears in their indoor viewing areas.

Half-price admission tickets can be purchased at the zoo ticket office during regular zoo hours and online at www.knoxvillezoo.org. Discounted admission tickets must be used by Feb. 28, 2014, and cannot be combined with any other promotion, discount, or coupon.

Knoxville Zoo is Knoxville's largest year-round attraction. Located off exit 392 from Interstate 40, the zoo is open every day except Christmas Day. Knoxville Zoo is nationally accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and is committed to the highest standards in animal care and well-being, ethics, conservation, and education. Currently, the zoo is open daily from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Admission and ticket sales stop one-hour before the zoo closes. Next-day admission is free after 3 p.m. For more information, please call 865-637-5331 ext. 300 or visit www.knoxvillezoo.org.
