New @ The Zoo
Meet The Animals
On Saturday, September 6, the Houston Zoo will close early at 5:30 p.m. for a private event. Last entry at 4:30 p.m.
The Wildlife Carousel will be closed through Friday, August 29, for repairs and maintenance.
Enjoy an adventure in the wild outdoors with your infant or toddler as we explore the habitats of the world. We’ll meet outside the front entrance by the gift shop and “stroll” together through a particular part of the Zoo. Our trek will conclude with a touchable animal encounter and a hand or footprint craft to take home. Individuals and parent groups welcome!
Get your tickets for Wild Wheels at the gate the morning of the program.
Members: $9 per child, adults are free
Non-Members: $22 per child (includes 1 adult admission)
$9 per additional child
