houston zoo

Your Houston Astros are back in the playoffs! They kick off their series against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday afternoon at 1 pm (make sure to check out our guide for how to get cheap Astros tickets), and the whole city is excited to cheer on the good guys. Now, the Houston Zoo is giving you another reason to don your Astros shirts, caps, and other gear by giving fans $3 off admission this Friday and Saturday!

Here’s how it works:

  • Wear your favorite Astros gear (e.g. jersey, T-shirt, ballcap, etc.)
  • Go to the Houston Zoo on Friday, October 4 or Saturday, October 5
  • Mention the Astros discount at the ticket booth
  • Get $3 off your ticket!

This discount brings adult tickets prices to only $16.95 and children’s ticket prices to $12.95. Senior tickets would cost $11.95.

This offer is only valid at the gate, so you can’t order your tickets online and score this deal. Also, make sure you actually mention the offer when purchasing your tickets or else you may not get the discount. It is not valid on previous purchases and cannot be combined with any other Houston Zoo discounts.

Remember, every ticket sold at the Houston Zoo goes toward helping save animals in the wild, so this is a great chance to support a good cause while also showing your Astros pride! Now in its 97th year, the Houston Zoo is a top conservation and education nonprofit organization that offers essential care to thousands of animals.

Simply put, if you’re looking for things to do in  Houston this weekend, this is a great offer.

The Houston Zoo is located at 6200 Hermann Park Drive, Houston, TX 77030. For more information about these and many other activities taking place this summer, visit their official website.
