March on up to the Zoo this Week

Join us for a week of even bigger thanks to our military personnel for their continued service to our great country. This week’s military discount features 50% off normal admission base price*, which is offered to all active-duty, veteran and retired military personnel and their dependents living in the same household. March on up to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for a week full of stars, stripes and sunshine!

  • This special military discount is offered to all active duty, veteran and retired military personnel.
  • All individuals visiting the Zoo must have their own advance e-ticket to enter the Zoo, including children age 2 and under.
  • ZOO GUESTS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR MASKS WHEN INSIDE ALL ZOO BUILDINGS, due to the recent mandate by the state of Colorado. We also strongly encourage wearing a mask when within 6 feet of other groups in outdoor areas.
  • Please be in line to enter the Zoo within 20 minutes after your ticketed time. Early arrivals or arrivals later than 20 minutes past your ticketed entry time may not be accommodated. If you arrive early for your time slot, please wait in your car until your entry time begins.
