Birmingham Zoo Achieves Record Breaking October

The Birmingham Zoo is pleased to announce a record breaking October. Throughout the month, the Zoo hosted its annual Halloween event, Boo at the Zoo presented by Wells Fargo, to which the success is attributed. For the month of October 2016, the Zoo brought in 82,533 guests. This is a 15% increase over October 2015 where the Zoo saw 71,592 visitors.

The record attendance for the month of October in addition to earlier record attendance has the Zoo on track to beat its all-time attendance record set in 2015 of 576,000 guests. The Zoo is on track to have over 600,000 in attendance in 2016. To celebrate this tremendous milestone for the Zoo, the 600,000th guest in attendance will receive a VIP day at the Zoo. It is estimated this guest will enter during the beginning of December.
