Penguin Discount Days
December 1, 2013 - February 28, 2014
Knoxville Zoo becomes the coolest place in town to visit during Penguin Discount Days! Beginning December 1, 2013 and continuing through February 28, 2014, admission to Knoxville Zoo is half-off. Don't worry, black-tie isn't required; just put on a warm jacket and a pair of mittens and come see why winter is a great time to visit the zoo! Many of the zoo's animals enjoy the crisp weather and are more active on cooler days. The zoo's favorite indoor exhibit, Wee Play Zoo, is a cozy place to stop and play if you do decide to get a bit chilly. On days that the temperature drops below 40 degrees, some animals will be moved to their indoor enclosures, but even on the coldest of days, guests can see the elephants, gorillas, penguins, reptiles and chimpanzees in their indoor viewing areas. Half-price admission tickets can also be purchased at any Knoxville area Kroger location and must be used by February 28, 2014 and cannot be combined with any other coupon or discount.
