As New York continues to progress with reopening in phases, Animal Adventure, as an open-air outdoor facility, is also implementing our phased reopening with Safe Practices Protocols. We are ready for PHASE 3, which allows limited capacity foot traffic inside the park, retail gift shop sales, and concession sales! We have a number of other mandates and operation protocols to keep guests, staff, and animals safe. To review protocols, prepare for your visit, and know what to expect – visit our Safe Practices Page.
We want to ensure that our guests have the confidence to visit the park and reconnect with our cast of over 300 animal characters, representing 100 species, for interactive educational experiences!
The Drive Thru Zoo will still be held Thursday & Saturday mornings from 9 am – 10 am, last cars admitted 9:40 am. Rave reviews were received from guests concerned with the virus, and also care providers for the vulnerable & limited mobility guests. With a goal of inclusion, we will keep the Drive Thru Zoo experience available for the month of June, revisiting it’s need again in July for possible continuation. Visit the dedicated Drive Thru Zoo for specific information on this available experience!
We are dedicated to the continued operation of Animal Adventure, coupled with guest safety sensitivity, to remain a safe, practical, and positive place of enjoyment. We thank you for your support and confidence.
Animal Adventure is designed to promote up close and hands-on animal encounters! Hand feed many domestic and exotic animal ambassadors and get within feet of our cute, but less cuddly, carnivores. Bring your camera, but keep one hand open, to feed and make friends, with animals from around the world.

Many of our animal ambassadors are from rescue situations & surrenders! Ask our staff, we would love to share their story with you!
We are proud to be a part of the Species Survival Plan!
Overseen by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, the focus of the SSP is to maintain a healthy and self-sustaining captive population that is both genetically diverse and demographically stable.
The species belonging to the SSP are selected based on the belief of captive breeding programs being their only chance for survival. We are honored to be a part of the solution.
