We had a nice visit, just wish some more concessions were open. Also we pre-paid and it was not easy to find out how we should enter. The zoo was clean and we would recommend it to others

The flamingos are always a favorite. Haven’t been on a carousel in years and it didn’t disappoint. Clean, animals were well taken care of. Staff members very friendly and cautious of mask requirements. Great time!

Our family of three enjoyed every part of our experience at the San Antonio zoo. Worth every penny. Even the fact that there are police officers from, San Antonio P.D. reassures your sense of security if you were to lose a child or feel threatened in any way.

Call each choice before going.

Go San Antonio Explorer Pass
So far we have visited the K1 Speed Indoor Carts and it was great. Then we drove 30 minutes to the Indoor Skydiving, listed as a premium choice. Well, I should have called first because when we got there I was told that they are no longer associated with the Go San Antonio Explorer Pass. This morning I read the reviewer that stated they called before going to each. Great advise that I will follow. Just think that whoever monitors this great program would remove any event that drops out of the program so that it is no longer on the list. Looking forward to the remainder of our visits.
