The City of Boise is closely monitoring COVID-19. Zoo Boise is following City recommended guidelines and policies for the safety of our guests, employees and animal collection. For your protection and the protection of others, we require employees and visitors to wear cloth face coverings or facemasks and to practice physical distancing in our facility. If you are unable to wear a cloth face covering or facemask, we will provide alternative options to ensure the safety of our staff and other members of the public and to provide you access to our services. The only exception to the cloth face covering or facemask policy that we allow at this time is for visitors under the age of two years.

The 30 minute window listed on your ticket is your entry time: please arrive only during those 30 minutes.
*In order to protect you and your family and to keep our animals safe and healthy, we have implemented a timed entry process with a limited number of visitors entering each hour. This means that purchasing a membership does not guarantee you will be able to come visit the zoo always at your preferred day and time. While there may be general admission tickets available, that may not mean membership slots are available for those same dates and times. General admission tickets are available in order to give people who may not be able to afford a membership a chance to visit. We open up dates and time slots for members at least one week in advance. We appreciate your patience and support as we move through these challenging times together.*
Member Ticket Guidelines Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis. Date and times are non-transferable. If you need to purchase non-member admission, go to https://zooboise.org/online-ticketing/.
