Love the Detroit Zoo! Make sure you check out... zoo brew and the Christmas lights during the holiday season.
It can get a little too busy during the prime of the summer season but it’s worth a little afternoon trip from time to time. Fair...More
We were very pleasantly surprised by Detroit Zoo. We visited on a cold Saturday and were happy that we were still able to see plenty of animals. The park is spread out which is great for letting little ones roam and the new penguin exhibit...More

I am guessing you are referring to the ticket purchase option. It allows you to go on or in several of the attractions that are available. It appears to not be explained on the website but if you go to the drop down menu for Visit and click on Attractions there are many things you can do at the Zoo for an additional cost. The Total Experience includes several of those thing but I can't say from memory which ones. I am 99% sure it includes the Railroad and the 4-D theater. I think it includes 2 more attractions. It is a very good deal but would definitely make for a longer visit at the Zoo. With a membership the price of the Total Experience is much lower, I think 12 dollars, which I think would make membership pay for itself on one visit.
