Monkey around with the family at the Denver Zoo for FREE in 2022. On select Free Days, the Zoo is giving back to the community with FREE ticket vouchers for every 15-minute admission window. The next free day at Denver Zoo is Sunday, April 10. Not everyone can come at once…so here’s how to score your free tickets by entering a lottery Tuesday to Saturday, March 29 to April 2.
Currently, the Zoo is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with admission windows from 10 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. By our calculations, there will be about 2,800 tickets available.
The Zoo always provides a wild time for families because there’s so much to do and see. Explore Predator Ridge populated with lions and other carnivores, the indoor rainforest Tropical Discovery, the Toyota Elephant Passage, Harmony Hill Bear Habitat, Primate Panorama, Northern Shores and more.
How The Denver Zoo Lottery System Works
The Denver Zoo will be giving away blocks of ticket vouchers for select dates, to be released one at a time. Vouchers will be available during a 5-day lottery period.
You can register to win up to 5 free tickets per transaction. At the end of the lottery period, winners will be randomly selected.
If you win, you MUST click the link in the email to reserve your tickets and entry time.
On your designated Free Day, simply bring your tickets to the Zoo and have a great time!
REMINDER: Denver Zoo Free Day vouchers and tickets are available ONLINE ONLY. No tickets will be available at the gate.
You must redeem your voucher for a timed ticket in order to enter the park. All guests must have a time ticket for entry, including children 2 and under.
Here’s where to go for more info and to sign up for the lottery when it opens.
