CINCINNATI (March 1, 2015) – A Zoo membership is a terrific way to enjoy year-round entertainment and education! Plus, save 10% on all new memberships purchased in March. Join today and start making wild memories. You can’t pass up this big hairy deal! There are multiple perks that go along with being an exclusive member of the Cincinnati Zoo! The Zoo opens at 10am daily, but members can enjoy Early Entry (9am) during spring and summer seasons. If FREE year-round admission, FREE enrollment in the Zoo Rewards Program, FREE admission to PNC Festival of Lights and FREE (or discounted) admission to over 100 other zoos isn’t enough, as a member you’ll also get discounts at all retail and food service locations! Do you want your friends to experience the fun too? All membership categories include three half-price guest passes, good for one visit each. All Gold memberships come with unlimited rides on the Zoo Train and Carousel and 6 FREE 4-D Theater Tickets. You’ll feel like a VIP with all of these perks plus invitations to special events and previews too! It’s just your luck – mammals are multiplying all over Africa! As a member, you’ll get the opportunity to watch our playful lion cubs cause mischief as they grow up right in front of your eyes! With plenty of painted dog pups in Painted Dog Valley, it could take more than one Zoo visit to tell them apart. This summer, enjoy face-to-face encounters with meerkats in a brand new exhibit, where a pop up bubble allows your child (or the child in you) to get an up close view of these charismatic creatures. Come back week after week to get to know all the new faces at the Zoo! Also, visit the open-vista hoof stock exhibit with ostrich, lesser kudu, crested guineafowl, pink-backed pelican, and Rüppell’s and lappet-faced vulture, to name a few! Your membership is a valuable contribution that provides much-needed support to help the Zoo maintain its standing as one of the top zoos in the country. Join the Zoo in 2015 and experience wild adventures with the whole family! The membership office is open daily, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and you may call (513) 559-7713 or e-mail us at [email protected].
