Purchase general admission tickets

Akron Zoo Members do not need to, and should not, reserve general admission tickets online in advance. You must bring your digital membership card and photo ID when visiting to gain entry. Members must still purchase special event tickets in advance to be admitted to special events such as Boo at the Zoo and Wild Lights.

With the Akron Zoo's new e-commerce, all guests, including Akron Zoo members, will need to create a new online account. This will offer a better ticketing experience, with new features previously not available, such as account information, order history and the ability to access purchased tickets!
