Animal Park Rules

Safety is our top priority—for both our guests and our animal friends. Please observe the following animal park rules so that you and others can have the most enjoyable time possible.

Calendar and Hours of Operation

The calendar below outlines our hours throughout the year. It is color-coded for quick reference. Our hours of operation change throughout the year, so please take them into consideration when planning your visit.

As part of our operations policy, the last ticket will be sold one hour before close on each day. However, we strongly recommend arriving at least 2 hours before close so that your party has the opportunity to see the entire park.

The tour bus schedule varies by season, but it will be posted on-site when you arrive. The park resources on this page can give you a general idea of when it is best to use the bus tours.

Severe Weather Policy

Snowy and icy conditions create dangerous driving conditions throughout the park. As such, we will close down the park if severe weather occurs or is expected. If there are days when the high does not reach 32 degrees, we may also close.
