    What to Expect
    Visit: Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, 3400 Vine Street, Cincinnati, OH 45220-1333

    With your Cincinnati Zoo Adventure Ticket, you will have access to see hundreds of animal species and thousands of plant species. Experience amazing exhibits, such as face-to-face encounters with meerkats with pop-up bubbles that allow you to have up-close views of these charismatic creatures.
    You can also enjoy seasonal attractions such as Zoo Blooms, Zoo Babies, HallZOOween, and more. Enjoy animal presentations throughout the day to learn about these amazing animals.
    Your adventure ticket also includes access to great attractions including: 1.) the BB&T Express, this train ride circles the inner loop of the zoo, giving a birds-eye view of some exhibits and a nice, relaxing ride around the Zoo's Swan Lake (this is a Zoo favorite)  2.) the Conservation Carousel, this is a blast for all ages as the unique carousel gives riders the choice of their favorite animal - whether it's a gorilla or the critically endangered Sumatran rhino  3.) the 4D Special FX Theater, this is an immersive experience that makes you feel like you're in the show. Enjoy a short, high-definition film along with special effects such as wind, water, smells, and even snow.
    Don’t forget to stop by the Welcome Center in Vine Street Village to see daily updates about feeding times and other tips to make the most of the visit.

    The zoo was amazing and the early entry ticket is worth the money. We came to see Fiona, Walter and Fennessy. We also wanted to see Kendi but he wasn't out. Next year the zoo is opening a beer garden and we cannot wait.
