Shopping & Rentals at the Erie Zoo


Gift Shop

Open Daily 10am-5pm

Hours are weather and attendance permitting. The Gift Shop is located near the front entrance to the zoo. The lost and found is also located in the Gift Shop. We have many items available for purchase including plush, clothing, toys, bags, souvenirs etc. There is always something for everyone to enjoy!

Erie Zoo members receive a 10% discount on all purchases of $5.00 or more if they present their membership card.

Stroller & Wheelchair Rentals

Rentals are available in the Gift Shop for those who would like a stroller or wheelchair to use during their visit. We have single strollers for $8.00, double strollers for $9.00, manual wheelchairs (free of charge) and motorized scooters for $23.00. All rental fees are subject to change at any time and do not include any discounts. All rentals must be returned no later than 4pm.

Rentals are through an outside company called Scooterbug. Therefore, all rentals require a form of I.D. to be held until the rental is returned to the Gift Shop. We have a limited number of wheelchairs available. If you'd like to reserve one ahead of time, please call the Main Office at (814) 864-4091 and ask to speak with the Gift Shop!
