The El Paso Zoo has made going to zoo an even more affordable family experience with $3 Thursdays through the end of August.

With the end of summer closing in and the beginning of a new school year upon us you’re running out of time for fun weekday afternoons with the fam on the cheap.

With $3 off kid’s tickets, $3 treats, and $3 train and carousel rides for 2, there are few better ways to spend Thursdays than at the zoo.

Home to 220 species of animals including endangered species, the El Paso Zoo is bigger and better than ever with the fairly recent additions of the state-of-the-art Wildlife Amphitheater and the Hunt Family Endangered Species Carousel attractions, and longtime favorites like the splash pad and the tree house playground.
