Admission prices rising at El Paso Zoo

Thursday, August 28, 2014 - 8:02pm

It'll now cost you more to visit the El Paso Zoo. Admission prices will rise next week from $10 to $12 for adults, and from $6 to $7.50 for kids. Infants are still free.

It'll also cost you more to feed the giraffes at the zoo. Giraffe encounters will cost $3 instead of $2.

The fee hikes are aimed at combating rising operating costs and to pay for new attractions such as a wild dog exhibit. Prices were last raised in 2010.

Here's a breakdown of the changes:

New admission prices:

Ages 2 and under Free
Ages 3 to 12 $7.50
Ages 13 to 59 $12.00
Ages 60 & Over $9.00
Active Duty Military & Spouse with ID $9.00
Zoological Society Members Free
New Giraffe Encounter price: $3.00

The zoo is open daily from 9:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Ticket booth closes at 4 p.m.
