Winter Wonder Days will run January - February
Providence, RI – Roger Williams Park Zoo is ringing in “zoo-thousand and thirteen” by offering half priced admission for all on New Year’s Day, January 1. And when New Year’s Day is done, visitors can still enjoy a winter visit with the animals at a discount - the Zoo is offering half-priced winter admission from the start of the new year through February 28. Half-priced admission is $7.50 for adults, $6.50 for seniors (62+) and $4.95 for children (ages 3 – 12). Zoo members and children under three are always free.
A winter visit to the Zoo is a unique way to beat cabin fever, with cold-hardy animals like snow leopards, Sichuan takin, bison, and others more likely to be active, while indoor exhibits like Tropical America, Australasia, and the Textron Giraffe and Elephant Pavilion offer warm and exotic relief from the cold. Guests in need of a warm pick me up can find hot drinks and a warm winter menu at the Wilderness Café, located in Wilderness Plaza in the upper Zoo.
For more information, visit www.rwpzoo.org or call 401-785-3510. Roger Williams Park Zoo is open daily, 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. (closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). Regular Zoo admission, March – December, is $14.95 for adults, $9.95 for children (ages 3 – 12) and $12.95 for seniors (ages 62+); children under 3 and Zoo members get in free.
