In the coming months, you're sure to hear the sound of progress at the Zoo! We are thrilled to be delving in full steam ahead into Phase 1 of the Master Plans for Reinvention. This means some areas of the Zoo may be a little loud & be inaccessible temporarily. As well, some animals might be off exhibit for a short time. But, don't fret...we love the animals behind the scenes just as much!

The Cypress Bayou Railroad Train Ride will NOT be running in 2023 as we work to re-imagine YOUR ZOO with many new exhibits and improvements, including the relocation of nearly half of the train track for a better guest experience. Due to this, the train will not be able to run until further notice. Thanks for your patience and support.

These are exciting times and we are thrilled that you coming along with us for what is sure to be a wild & magical ride! To thank you for your patience, we are offering a "Pardon our Progress" Pass when a substantial amount of the Zoo is not accessible. This means you'll pay for a full-price ticket when you visit today and receive a free pass to return at a later date in the coming year.
