Fun At The Zoo: “Beat The Heat”


The official start of summer brings early birds an exclusive chance to save on Zoo admission while enjoying the unique opportunities of a brand-new season at Zoo Atlanta. Now through June 30, 2016, arrive at the Zoo before 10:30 a.m. and mention “Beat the Heat” to enjoy $5 off regularly-priced general admission. The limited-time promotion offers a savings of more than $20 for a family of four.


Summer Zoo experiences include the Splash Fountain presented by Atlanta Fulton County Recreation Authority, a water-play area featuring 18 jets on a 2,500-square foot section of the KIDZone, and a new season of interactive animal presentations at the World of Wild Theater presented by Georgia Natural Gas and the Amy’s Tree Theater.

The Zoo’s newest destination, the climate-controlled Scaly Slimy Spectacular: The Amphibian and Reptile Experience, is an indoor oasis introducing more than 70 species in state-of-the-art habitats representing some of the planet’s most recognizable natural landscapes, from an Australian billabong to a Georgia tidal creek.

The “Beat the Heat” promotion is valid only through June 30, 2016 and is valid only at Zoo Atlanta Admissions; not valid with any other offer.
