There will be some important changes in 2020. For one, all admission to the zoo – for members or non-members – must be arranged in advance. To keep occupancy low, the zoo is limiting the number of visitors it will accept and selling tickets for entrance at specific hours of the day. (Once you enter, you can stay as long as you like.)
You can read more here about the changes at the zoo for 2020.

How to Get Twilight Tuesday Discounted Admission to Sedgwick County Zoo in 2020
- To get the $3 Twilight Tuesday admission this year, you will want to go directly to the Sedgwick County Zoo website and scroll down until you see the “RESERVE TICKETS NOW” button. Click on that.
- On the next screen, select a Tuesday in July. You will see two Buy Now buttons. Click the bottom one unless you are a senior or vulnerable due to a health condition.
(The first hour of the day is reserved for seniors and vulnerable populations. If you see only an option for seniors at 8 a.m. or 8:30 a.m., back out and click the other Buy Now button. Then you’ll see all the available options.)
- Choose the number of visitors you’ll have, select the time slot you would like to arrive, and then continue on to complete the checkout process.
Remember that even members must get a ticket – but their ticket will be free.
Bring your family to the Zoo every Tuesday evening in July and enjoy some quality family time strolling through the Zoo! Some animals are more active in the evening hours, when the temperatures have dropped. The Zoo will stay open until 8:30 p.m. every Tuesday in July.
Admission is $3 per person or free with a Sedgwick County Zoo membership all day on Tuesdays in July.
The Twilight Tuesdays event used to be when the zoo would stay open late for members to stroll the zoo and enjoy cooler evening hours. Later it became an evening event that was open to everyone, and with free admission for those few hours.
Now Twilight Tuesdays at the Zoo, sponsored by Cox Communications, means discounted admission and is offered ALL DAY.
Members still get in free. Non-members get $3 admission on Tuesdays in July from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
