MTN & The Kansas City Zoo
’s top priority is the safety of our donor families, guests, staff, and animals. As a precautionary measure against the spread of COVID-19, the Kansas City Zoo
is requiring Zoo guests to wear protective face masks in areas where social distancing may not be feasible. This includes all indoor areas (including restrooms), rides, and the bridge to Africa and West Africa. Masks are required for guests 5 and up and strongly recommended for ages 2-4 with close adult supervision. Guests with disabilities or medical conditions that do not allow for face masks to be worn are exempt from this requirement.
To assist with social distancing practices the Kansas City Zoo
has closed some space-restricted and high-touch areas. Stingray Bay, lion indoor viewing and the Snake House are currently closed to the public. All other animal habitats are open. Face masks are required in indoor areas. Pathways around the West Africa section of the Zoo and through Australia and Tiger Trail are one-way traffic. Daily activities such as animal shows and Zookeeper Chats are temporarily suspended but are available virtually with a QR code you can access with your mobile phone or through our web site at www.kansascityzoo.org/virtual-chats. Africa Tram, KCZoo Railroad, and the African Sky Safari are operating daily but may have limited capacity due to physical distancing guidelines. Face masks are required, and seats are disinfected between each ride. The Endangered Species Carousel and Kenyan Cruise are temporarily closed.
Tickets are not available as this event has passed.
