Zoo Miami Reopens Its Doors After Closing For More Than Two Months

The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to find creative forms of entertainment. But nothing can compare to visiting some of our favorite attractions.

Venues at Miami-Dade County, like Zoo Miami, are starting to reopen. Animal lovers can now forgo virtual tours of the park—Zoo Miami reopened on June 1 after being temporarily closed since March 19.

To keep visitors safe, Zoo Miami has implemented strict guidelines to ensure the safety of guests, animals and workers. High-contact activities like playground rides, water play areas and zookeeper presentations will remain closed. 

To minimize touchpoints for entry, walk-up visits have been eliminated and visitors must pre-purchase tickets. Online purchases are advised since only a limited number of tickets will be sold on-site (with lines that follow social distancing rules). 

Tickets are priced as follows: $18.95 for ages 3-12 and $22.95 for ages 13 and up. A maximum of 10 tickets will be allowed per transaction.

Guests are required to wear masks at all times except when they are in open areas (as long as they’re maintaining social distance). One-way only directional decals will be placed in exhibits to maintain a safe distance between guests. 

All indoor exhibits will only allow 50% capacity and food services will have seating arrangements placed six feet apart. There will be hand sanitation stations throughout the zoo, and both restrooms and rentals will be regularly sanitized.
