Zoofari Drive Thru

May 26 @ 8:00 am - June 30 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Visit the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium from the safety of your car with this limited-time Zoofari Drive-Thru fundraiser guided by a themed audio tour on select days and times!

As the Zoo remains closed to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this fundraiser will help to raise funds for our Emergency Operating Fund. We appreciate your support during this time!

Timed tickets are available for purchase now. Tickets are $60 per vehicle / $50 for Members vehicles. All tickets must be purchased in advance online.

Please arrive at the main parking lot on the specified day and time on your ticket. You will not be permitted to enter the Zoo before or after your selected time.

Safety is top priority at this zoofari! All guests will be required to follow the below safety protocols and guidelines:

Guests are prohibited from exiting their vehicle at any time.
All tailgates, doors/van doors and hatchbacks must remain closed at all times.
Keep noise to a minimum – no loud music and no honking.
Follow the guided tour only; speed limit is 2 mph.
Be considerate of other guests and limit your time at animal habitats.
Keep the Zoo clean by carrying out trash after your visit.
Smoking, alcohol and pets are prohibited in the Zoo (with the exception of service animals.)
Restrooms will NOT be available.
Motorcycles, motorbikes, scooters and bicycles are NOT permitted.
We recommend downloading the audio tour here before you arrive.
By purchasing a ticket, the ticket purchaser/holder and all members of the party assume the inherent risk that injury may result; agrees to unconditionally and fully release the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, its respective employees, volunteers, assigns and/or agents and representatives from any and all past or future claims, demands, actions, causes of action, suits, or other liabilities of whatever kind, including, but not limited to, those arising out of the use of the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, its respective employees, assigns and/or agents and representatives’ alleged negligence.
