Knoxville Zoo Offering Buy One, Get One Free Tickets in December

Posted: 12/03/2014
December 3, 2014 - Knoxville Zoo is offering "Buy One, Get One Free" admission tickets during the month of December to encourage guests to discover why winter is a great time to visit.

Visitors to Knoxville Zoo this time of year will see many zoo animals, including red pandas and river otters, actively enjoying the cooler weather outdoors. On days when the temperature drops below 40 degrees, some animals will be moved indoors, but visitors can still see many of their favorite animals, including elephants, gorillas, penguins, chimpanzees and reptiles, in their indoor viewing areas.

A December trip to the zoo may even include a visit with Santa Claus too, when Pilot Flying J's Wee Play Adventure indoor play area hosts Santa's Village, a special holiday encounter and photo opportunity. Santa's Village will be open for Christmas wishes and photos December 4th through 7th and 11th through 14th from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. each day.

Half-price admission tickets can be purchased at the zoo ticket window during regular zoo hours and online at knoxvillezoo.org. Discounted admission tickets must be used by Feb. 28, 2015, and cannot be combined with any other promotion, discount, or coupon.

Knoxville Zoo is Knoxville's largest year-round attraction. Located off exit 392 from Interstate 40, the zoo is open every day except Christmas Day. Knoxville Zoo is nationally accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and is committed to the highest standards in animal care and well-being, ethics, conservation, and education. Currently, the zoo is open daily from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Admission and ticket sales stop one-hour before the zoo closes.
