Group Visits to the Erie Zoo

The Erie Zoo is the perfect setting for your field trip, family or work outing! We are currently offering discounted rates to groups that visit the Zoo this season. Because of the current situation with Covid-19, we will be operating a bit differently than usual.

Since the Zoo is operating on a timed-ticket system this season to ensure social distancing and adhere to capacity guidelines, we cannot accept any groups that show up without a reservation.

You MUST pre-register AND pre-pay. The reason for pre-payment is because we have to sell you a specific date and time-slot, which could have been otherwise open to the public for purchase.

Thank you for your understanding. All information is listed below. If you have any questions please call Amie Fritz at (814) 864-4091 ext. 226 or email afritz@eriezoo.org.

Add-ons

Guided Walking Tours

Guided tours are walking adventures that take your group of 25 or fewer to the animal exhibits to observe firsthand the unique behaviors and adaptations of the creatures of the Erie Zoo. Tours are best suited for school-aged groups and adults and last approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour.  We can tailor a tour to suit your group's educational needs.

Cost: $45 per group of 25 or fewer.  $40 per additional group from the same group on the same day.
