Best Day at Denver Zoo

Just when you thought your day at Denver Zoo couldn’t get any better, it’s Best Day at the Zoo! We want to make sure everyone has the chance to experience all the awesomeness on our 84-acre campus. So, every day, we’ll be handing out Best Day Passes at random! 

Each pass entitles the bearer and your crew* to each enjoy FIVE incredible experiences at no additional
charge, courtesy of our generous sponsors. Will YOU be one of the lucky few?

Your Best Day Pass includes access
to the following experiences:


Stingray Cove™

Enjoy one of the Zoo’s most popular experiences: touching and feeding gentle stingrays, while small sharks glide peacefully by. Each member of your crew** will even get a piece of fish food to help you make some finny friends 

Lorikeet Adventure

When you step into this magical, open-air aviary, you'll immediately be surrounded by song. Colorful lorikeets (a small member of the parrot family) fly overhead, and may even land on your shoulder for a sip of nectar!


Denver Zoo Railroad

As any kiddo (and quite a few adults) will surely tell you, no trip to the Zoo is complete without a ride on Denver Zoo Railroad, Presented by Union Pacific Railroad. This guest-favorite experience is wheelchair accessible. 

Conservation Carousel

Get ready to take a spin astride your favorite wild animal! Our beautiful, wheelchair-accessible Conservation Carousel features hand-carved representations of some of Denver Zoo’s most beloved residents—including tigers, giraffes and more. 

4D Theater

4-D Experience

In our awesome interactive theater, built-in motion and special effects throughout the theater allow you to feel the action on the screen during each 15-minute experience. Accessibility devices for hearing and visually impaired guests are available. 

*Best Day Passes must be presented for attractions access. Passes are non-transferable, have no cash value, must be used on the day received and cannot be replaced if lost or stolen.  

**crew is you + up to 9 others

A hearty thanks to our friends and sponsors for making this possible!
