If its Friday thru Sunday, I would suggest advance tickets.
No , we bought ours on the spot . We bought our tickets online , in front of the ticket both, and saved 10% . Money saved, is money earned !
If you can get tickets in advance go for it beside any discount helps
I did because I saved around $10 per ticket
No but on crowded day it helps.
General admission is free all day on Wednesdays at the Bronx Zoo. If you have Cablevision/Optimum go to Optimum Rewards and you get 20% off of the admission price - it's expensive. The Bronx Zoo online tickets offer 10% off. So it is better to get your tickets online and then you go through quickly. Wednesdays must be mobbed but at the beginning of the school year maybe not so bad - except for moms with little kids.
