Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Celebrates Our Military!

September 6, 2017

— Military Appreciation Week honors service members and their families with a week-long bonus discount —

Colorado Springs, CO – Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is celebrating the service of military personnel and their families during Military Appreciation Week, Monday, September 11 through Sunday, September 17 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. (last admission sold at 4 p.m.). All active duty, veteran and retired military members and their dependents who live in the same household will receive half off our base Zoo admission.

Military Appreciation Week is the Zoo’s way of thanking military personnel for their service to our great country. It will be a week of gratitude from the animals! For maximum savings, come Monday through Thursday to take advantage of weekday pricing. Friday through Sunday will be peak pricing days, wherein admission is a little higher.

To receive the discount, military personnel and their dependents will need to present a valid military ID at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s admission booth. Accepted IDs include: a valid military / retired military ID; a copy of your DD214; your state driver’s license printed with veteran indicator or military identifier; or your ID issued by the VA, VFW or American Legion. If a service member is deployed, dependents are still entitled to this discount; we simply ask that they furnish their valid ID.
