Akron Zoo to launch new pricing structure, eliminate parking fee

AKRON, Ohio – The Akron Zoo will be changing its pricing structure beginning Tuesday, Jan. 16. The zoo will be moving to plan-ahead pricing, which will offer variable admission prices.

Guests will be able to select their admission price based on their date of visit. Buying tickets online at akronzoo.org in advance will offer a lower price point. Tickets will be available up to 60 days in advance.

Other factors – such as attendance patterns, event popularity, holidays and weather – will be considered for the daily admission rate. Lower-priced days will tend to see smaller crowds or have fewer activities. Higher-price days are more popular visit days, will have larger crowds and may have more activities available.

Tickets will continue to be sold at the zoo’s ticket counter. Day-of tickets will be available at the highest price. Guests who may not have the option to purchase tickets online may call the zoo at 330-375-2550 for assistance in securing tickets in advance.

The zoo is also eliminating the parking fee for all guests, making parking free effective immediately.

The Akron Zoo is open 361 days a year. Off-season hours are 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Through Jan. 15, admission is $9 per person. Children under two are free. For more information visit www.akronzoo.org or call (330) 375-2550.
