Project Timeline: On hold to prioritize projects that benefit the animals in our care; after completion of Oxley Family Elephant Experience and Elephant Preserve and African Wilds: Carnivores
The Tulsa Zoo experience begins at the front door. The improved entry sequence will streamline ticketing for visitors and increase guest amenities for an updated experience for our 650,000 guests that enter the zoo every year.
At current estimates, the zoo will grow to 800,000 guests a year with the opening of the Carnivores and Elephant projects. Our current front entry cannot accommodate the number of guests that will attend the zoo on a yearly basis. In addition, new restrooms, a new gift shop, dedicated security and first aid stations will meet the demand of an enhanced guest experience.
