San Antonio Zoo Offers $8 Admission to Bexar County ResidentsSource: Google Street View

San Antonio natives, your days just got a little wilder. The San Antonio Zoo is slashing ticket prices exclusively for Bexar County residents, offering a five-day streak of $8 entry per head. That's a snip of the regular price, folks. According to an announcement by KENS5, this steal is part of the Locals Day event, running from February 15 to 19. And all it takes for one to swing through the gates at this cut-rate is proof of residency - a utility bill or an ID should do the trick.

Planning to visit the top-rated animal haven on July 29? Bexar residents can experience the No. 1 zoo in Texas at a bargain, thanks once again to the generosity of the San Antonio Zoo and their ongoing community appreciation initiatives. "The deep discount is the zoo's way of showing gratitude towards residents of San Antonio; allowing for even more people to learn how the zoo combines conservation, animal care, and education in securing a future for wildlife," zoo officials said in an email statement obtained by KSAT. It seems keeping that wallet padded isn't so hard after all, not with those regular admissions slashed down from $23.50 and $18.57 for adults and kids, respectively.

Venture into the animal kingdom without burning through your savings is indeed tempting. What's more, locals can embark on this budget-friendly safari by simply showing proof of Bexar County domicile at the zoo's front gate. And for families, the Zoo Boo event, a non-scary daytime Halloween celebration, adds a dash of spooky fun to the mix. Get ready to be dazzled, because the zoo also recently introduced a new 4D theater packed with sensory thrills – think water mist and seat tremors. Adding to the immersive experience, bubbles, snow, scent, FX lighting, and wind make it a cinematic escapade not to be missed.

With more Locals Days marked on the calendar, such as November 15 and December 12, Bexar County families have plenty to look forward to. And let's not dart past the fact that San Antonio Zoo operates seven days a week, from the bright-eyed hour of 9 a.m. to the cool-down time of 5 p.m., providing ample opportunity for guests to roam among our feathered, scaled, and furry friends.
