Make Grandparents Day a family affair

Enjoy free admission for up to two grandparents per party on September 10.

Make a trip to the Zoo a family affair at Grandparents Day presented by Kaiser Permanente Senior Advantage on Sunday, September 10, 2017. Guests enjoy free admission for up to two grandparents per party with purchase of any regularly-priced child’s or adult’s general admission ticket. 

Grandparents do not require a ticket if accompanied by a child or adult with a regularly-priced ticket, which may be purchased online here or at Zoo Atlanta Admissions. The offer is valid only on Sunday, September 10, and may not be combined with any other offer or promotion. 

Although Zoo Atlanta Members enjoy unlimited free admission to the Zoo year-round as part of their regular benefits, Members may also treat up to two grandparents to a Zoo day on Sunday. A named adult on the Zoo Atlanta Membership card must be present to redeem the offer. 

Zoo Atlanta is itself home to several grandparents, notably western lowland gorillas Ozzie, 56; Choomba, 54; and Shamba, 58. All pioneers of the Zoo’s Ford African Rain Forest and what is now North America’s largest population of gorillas, these three individuals have more than 50 descendants living at Zoo Atlanta and in accredited zoological organizations throughout the U.S. Choomba and Shamba are the grandmothers of Zoo Atlanta’s youngest gorilla, Mijadala, born September 18, 2016.
