El Pasoans sure do love the zoo after hours! 

This past Saturday the El Paso Zoo held their first $5 after 5 pm promotion which allowed guests the opportunity to head to the El Paso Zoo after their regular zoo hours.

This promotional event was a way to help families beat the summer heat and enjoy the zoo when the heat wasn’t too much of an issue.

On top of the later hours, guests were able to enjoy a discounted zoo entry price of $5.

Families lined up at the El Paso Zoo this past Saturday to enjoy the zoo after hours. The line stretched all the way around the zoo’s parking lot proving that El Pasoans really do love their zoo’s.

Because of this great turnout, the El Paso Zoo decided to start their promotional hours 30 minutes earlier!

“We had a tremendous turnout this past Saturday and we're ready to do it all over again,” read a post on the El Paso Zoo’s Facebook page.

The zoo will be honoring the $5 promotion starting 30 minutes earlier, 4:30 pm, on July 16, 23, and 30th.

If you have an El Paso Zoo membership then there is even better news for you!

Families with zoo memberships can skip the long line and join in on this promotion for FREE! Zoo memberships also allow families unlimited visits to the El Paso Zoo for the rest of the year.

There’s still time to get a zoo membership to enjoy the zoo after hours promotion and more! You can head to the zoo offices during regular business hours for more details on how you can get a membership for the El Paso Zoo.
