Once a month we are opening up the zoo an hour early for guests to enjoy a quieter time with low crowds. We’ll also have some sensory friendly stations and tactile experiences for guests to explore and enjoy. This is a self-guided visit catering to guests with sensory sensitivities, autism, disabilities and really anyone who could benefit from a quieter more inclusive experience.
