Plan-Ahead Pricing

With Plan-Ahead Pricing, you can pick the date and time that works best with your schedule and budget. The further in advance you purchase tickets, the more you’re likely to save! Plan-Ahead Pricing helps make Zoo New England more accessible to a range of audiences who can connect with the natural world through meaningful experiences that engage, educate and inspire the next generation of conservation stewards.

Please note:

  • Children under age two are free.
  • A $1.50 processing fee applies per ticket.


How does it work?
After you click the "Buy Stone Zoo Tickets" button above, you'll see available dates/times and the respective ticket prices. Each day’s prices are determined by a number of factors, including attendance patterns, popular holidays/events, day of the week and weather.

Are these the final prices or it is possible for the price to go down?
The current price listed online will always be the most affordable option for the selected date. It is possible that the price may increase over time.

Can I still buy tickets at the gate?
Buying tickets online in advance saves you time and money. If available, general admission tickets may be sold at the gate at both Zoos. Prices will be higher at the gate, so we recommend buying your tickets online in advance.

How far ahead do I need to purchase tickets in order to save?
We recommend buying tickets online at least 24-hours in advance. An advance purchase online ticket offers the lowest price for the date of your visit.

If I have already purchased tickets, can I visit on another day?
All ticket sales are final and cannot be moved to other dates. Please make sure you are able to attend your reserved slot at time of purchase.

Does this affect membership rates?
No, the cost of membership is not affected by plan-ahead pricing, and you can apply your daytime general admission receipt toward the purchase of a membership within seven days! Membership is always the best deal - members enjoy free admission to two Zoos for one low price! As a member, you’ll receive discounts on food and gift purchases, party rentals, education programs, invites to members-only events and exhibit previews, express entrance on high attendance days, and much more. Become a member today!
