Wild Winter Days at Zoo Atlanta

Enjoy the Zoo at a seasonal discount now through February 28

Winter is no time to hibernate! Zoo Atlanta announces the limited-time Wild Winter Days Promotion, with a special invitation to enjoy the Zoo’s cool-weather sights and experiences at an exclusive seasonal discount. Now through February 28, 2017, guests will enjoy general admission of just $15.99 across all categories.

The discount offers the season’s best value on Zoo general admission, which is regularly $25.99 for adults and $17.99 for children at the admission gate. Daytime general admission remains free for Zoo Atlanta Members and children under 3.

Winter highlights include a chance at sightings of 4-month-old giant panda twins Ya Lun and Xi Lun, now embarking on their first adventures exploring their mother Lun Lun’s cozy indoor dayroom habitat. Although there is not yet a guarantee of seeing the cubs, Lun Lun currently has the option of bringing the twins into the space between the hours of 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. daily. While Ya Lun and Xi Lun are too young to explore the great outdoors, giant pandas are adapted for life in cool bamboo forests in the mountains of China, and the cubs’ father, Yang Yang, may often be seen in his outdoor habitat on cold days.

Wintertime favorites include the always-tropical Scaly Slimy Spectacular: The Amphibian Reptile Experience, featuring indoor views of some 100 animals, including four American alligators basking under a 30-foot naturalistic waterfall. Other cold-weather friends include but are not limited to Idgie the red panda, a native of the Himalayas; Chilean flamingos, natives of the Andes; and Loki and Thor the tanuki, now sporting their thicker winter coats in the only zoo in the U.S. where these Asian canids are found.

The Wild Winter Days promotion is valid only through February 28, 2017, and is available online at zooatlanta.org or in person at Zoo Atlanta Admissions. The discount may not be combined with any other offer or promotion.

All animal activities are weather-permitting and may be subject to change due to weather conditions or temperatures below 40 degrees. Ask any Zoo Admissions associate for updated information on animal habitats.
