Enjoy a fun-filled day suitable for the whole family during a visit to the Woodland Park Zoo!

Take a walk on the wild side with your Woodland Park Zoo tickets! With your skip-the-line privileges, you don’t have to wait in the long lines to enter the zoo! Then, you can roam around a 92-acre green space that is home over 1,000 animals. Meet the one-horned Assam rhinoceros, as well as adorable river otters, gorillas, giraffes, and many other fascinating creatures. Getting up-close and personal with over 300 animal species is one of the most exciting things to do in Seattle!

With more than 10 bioclimatic zones, the zoo tries to create an environment that is as close as possible to their natural habitats. The habitats range from an African savanna to a tropical rainforest, making the animals feel at home. You can even meet the furry animal ambassadors who help guests to understand the animal kingdom a little bit better. Come across majestic birds of prey or take some time to greet Hudson, the arctic fox. The children can even explore and have fun in the Zoomazium, which is why a trip to the Woodland Park Zoo is what to do in Seattle!
