There are several ways to purchase group rate tickets:
Option 1: All members of the group arrive at the zoo at the same time on the same day. One form of payment is required at the ticket booth at the time of arrival. Please make reservations for your group by calling (315) 435-8511 x100 at least two weeks prior to your visit.
Option 2: A representative for the group will take pre-orders and will purchase the exact number of tickets needed by the group. The ticket price is based on the total number of tickets purchased and no refunds will be issued for unused tickets. Payment is received in advance of the visit in exchange for tickets which are then distributed to members of the group. Tickets may be used at any time and do not have an expiration date. To purchase advance sale group rate tickets, call (315) 435-8511 x110 at least two weeks prior to your visit.
Option 3: The Rosamond Gifford Zoo at Burnet Park is pleased to offer consignment ticket sales to community organizations. Tickets purchased via this program are good for one day. The group determines the date that best suits them. The group name and visit date will be printed on the tickets. An $85 deposit, payable via cash, check or credit card, is required for this program. Within two weeks of your visit you will receive an invoice from the zoo. Payment for your visit must be received within two weeks of the invoice date. If your payment is not received by this date, a late payment fee of 10% of the balance due will be added to your balance every 30 days until paid in full. To purchase consignment tickets, call (315) 435-8511 x110 and inquire about the consignment ticket program.
Please note: The Rosamond Gifford Zoo does not refund admission or provide "rain checks" because of weather.
