The Drive Thru Zoo returns once again!

Last Friday, the San Antonio Zoo announced a second extension of the tour, which was first launched at the beginning of the month as a safe, socially distant way to enjoy its animals and facilities.

Now more patrons can get a chance to visit the wildlife from a distance, starting today and continuing through Thursday, May 21. Drive Thru Zoo hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the same vehicle size requirements apply. Tickets cost $60 for non-members and $32 for annual pass holders and members, priced per vehicle.

The zoo is also accepting donations to its emergency fund, which supports the care of the resident animals during the COVID-19 crisis.
