TUCSON - Beginning next month, a trip to the Reid Park Zoo will cost just a little extra, with a new admission fee hike taking effect to cover the costs of Expedition Tanzania.
The $400,000 elephant expansion, approved by the Mayor and Council in 2010, was to be paid for by increased patron attendance and admission fees that take effect July 1.
The fees are also now seasonally-adjusted, and the Mayor and Council are expected to vote on amending the City Code to reflect these new rates during the next council meeting.
Beginning July 1, a trip to the zoo will cost an adult age 15 to 61 $8 from June to November, and $9 from December to May - an increase of $1 and $2, respectively.
Senior citizens will also be paying $1 to $2 more: $6 in the June to November season, and $7 from December to May.
Children age 2 to 14 will now pay $4 or $5, depending on the season, and reserved school group rates have risen from $1 to $2 per person.
