Thanks to the friends at Dallas own Metro PCS, the Dallas Zoo is offering $1 admission all day on November 23. Look for dollar deals on food and gifts throughout the park. Take the DART Red Line straight to the Zoo entrance to avoid the traffic and save the $7 per car parking fee.
Also check out their new iPhone app!
The Dallas Zoo today recently announced the launch of their new iPhone app, becoming the first zoo in North Texas, and second zoo in the state, to do so. The Dallas Zoo is the first zoo in the U.S. to offer guests information in both English and Spanish.Visitors can use the app to enrich their experience by following the schedule of zookeeper talks.“The iPhone app is a great education tool for the Dallas Zoo,” said Greene. “When you’re at the Zoo you can follow our schedule on your iPhone. You’ll know to be at the elephant exhibit at 2:00 when a keeper is there talking about what our elephants are doing, what they’re eating, and what challenges wild elephants face in Africa. It will make the whole guest experience richer.”
“The Dallas Zoo iPhone app is part of our vision to create the best possible experience for our guests,” said Gregg Hudson, Executive Director, Dallas Zoo and The Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park. “We spend a lot of time and effort creating a natural habitat for our animals. People might be surprised to learn that technology, like the iPhone app, plays an important role in helping us connect with our guests, and giving them a more personal, direct connection with our animals.”
The Dallas Zoo’s iPhone app is free, with information about hours, admission, parking, directions, maps that will help guests navigate exhibits at the Zoo, information about the Dallas Zoo’s animals, membership, educational programs, special events and more. To download, search “Dallas Zoo” on your iPhone. The GPS-based system provides locations of favorite animals and more than 130 animal descriptions. Facebook users can send automatic messages and photos of our most popular animals to their friends. Our Friend Finder uses GPS locations to connect you to friends who also are enjoying the largest zoo in Texas, while our Near Me feature helps guests locate Zoo amenities like restaurants, vending machines, first aid stations, and rest rooms.
