Daily Admission at Woodland Park Zoo
From $14.95
Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo houses over 300 animal species and contains more than 10 bioclimatic zones, which range from humid tropical rain forests to coastal deserts. Ideal for time-pressed travelers, this admission ticket allows you to bypass the ticketing line at the zoo’s west entrance. Inside, you can admire an impressive range of animals including gorillas, grizzlies, lions, giraffes, and penguins.
What to Expect

Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo is  home to over 1,100 animals representing 300 animal species. 

Connect with nature as you discover the world of gorillas, grizzlies, lions, giraffes and more. Meet curious and clever ambassador animals at outdoor theater programs--a hornbill, porcupine, raccoon, miniature pot-bellied pigs and more. See penguins "fly" under water along a stunning desert coast. Enjoy squealing otters. Go eye-to-eye with orangutans in an open forest canopy. Experience free-flying butterflies in a seasonal garden. Encounter tigers and learn how to save these big cats. See...and save wildlife!

The zoo's 92 acres are divided into bioclimatic zones, featuring different natural habitats ranging from humid tropical rain forests and coastal deserts to temperate rain forests like those of the Pacific Northwest. Noted for its cutting edge exhibits and expansive horticultural collection, the award-winning zoo is hailed as one of the finest in the world.

Feed a penguin, talk to a zoo keeper, ride the historical carousel--there's so much to do at the Woodland Park Zoo!

The zoo is my favorite attraction in Seattle. I've been twice, once prior to moving to the city in 2013 and again in 2018. It is large, so be prepared to walk for a few hours. Also. As other reviewers have noted, you do have...More
