Insider Tips!

  • Skip the Lines

    The best way to skip entry lines is to become a member! The express member entry line moves much faster. After parking, members follow orange signs that guide them to a secondary entrance west (right) of the main bridge.

    Insider tip: Membership pays for itself in about two zoo visits. Members receive free entry AND get discounts on food (excluding alcohol), shopping, carousel and train tickets.

  • Avoid Heavy Traffic

    Sheridan Road tends to become congested during Spring Break.

    Use Harvard or Yale to get to 36th Street North, and bypass the worst of the traffic. Then to avoid even more congestion … go in what feels like a secret entrance. Instead of going through the main zoo entrance, drive through our alternate entrance, noted here below. By taking Winston Avenue, you’ll avoid the worst traffic, get great views of Mohawk Park, and be led by signs straight to our parking lot.

  • Parking

    Mohawk Park entry and parking are free during Spring Break! However, the main parking lot fills up quickly. Premium parking is available for the low cost of $5 per vehicle. This lot is located next to the circle drive at the zoo entrance.

    Insider tip: Feel free to drop off your group in our circle drive (in front of the zoo entrance) before parking.

    There are a variety of eateries at the Tulsa Zoo!

    George Kaiser Family Foundation Rajan’s is unveiling a new menu featuring gourmet grilled cheese, hand-battered chicken tenders and sandwiches, chop salads and tots. Cool down with Tulsa Zoo’s exclusive Rose Rock Microcreamery snickerdoodle ice-cream, or choose from 3 other delicious flavors. Located in the heart of the Lost Kingdom, Rajan’s climate-controlled indoor section is perfect for watching the big game, with multiple screens and beer on tap. If you prefer a more wild dining experience make your way to the patio section, with up-close viewing of the tiger exhibit.

    Ann & Jack Graves Komodo Canteen offers two seating areas where guests can relax with a sweet or salty treat, and enjoy fantastic views of the wildlife around them. Or just grab a hand-dipped corn dog, funnel fries or tater tots — and wash it down with a soda, ICEE or beer — as you journey through the Lost Kingdom.

    Macaw Landing Grille or The Grille, as zoo regulars call it, is a full-service restaurant that offers everything from hot pizza to hamburgers made to order. The outside of the sandwiches are as good as the inside with bread from Farrell Bakery. Wash lunch down with an ice-cold soft drink or select a tasty dessert. Indoor and outdoor seating is available.

    While the kids are using up energy at the all-new Helmerich Playground: Behaving Like Animals, refuel at Lion’s Lookout (formally Jaguar Junction) with a mix-it-up ICEE experience, soft-serve ice cream or a tasty snack.

    Also, ICEE and Dippin’ Dots stands are just a few of the cool refreshments that you may find in kiosks around the park.
