$5 Zoo Admission for Twilight Tuesdays in July

You will want to mark your calendars for Twilight Tuesdays at the ZOO! On Tuesdays in July, the Sedgwick County Zoo stays open late and gives us a special admission discount. And yes – Cox Twilight Tuesdays at the Zoo are happening in 2024!

This year, the concerts are back for Twilight Tuesdays at the Zoo (schedule coming soon).

Sedgwick County Zoo is located in Wichita, Kansas. It is one of the largest zoos in the state and is home to over 3,000 animals, representing nearly 400 species. The zoo covers an area of approximately 247 acres and features a variety of exhibits and attractions.

Some notable exhibits at Sedgwick County Zoo include the African Veldt, Downing Gorilla Forest, Tiger Trek, Slawson Family Tiger Trek, and the Koch Orangutan & Chimpanzee Habitat. The zoo is known for its commitment to conservation and education, offering various programs and events to raise awareness about wildlife and their habitats.

Twilight Tuesdays Zoo Hours

During Twilight Tuesdays, the zoo will be open for extended hours – from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Your reduced $5 admission is good all day! Bring the family to the ZOO and enjoy some quality time strolling through the zoo and seeing all the animals. 

Pro Tip: Some animals are more active in the evening hours when the temperatures have dropped, so take advantage of this special admission price. 

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 at a reduced admission price.
