Free Touch Exhibit at Zoo

In case you’re looking for somewhere to take the kids while the weather is still warm around here in Cleveland, the Touch Stingrays and Sharks exhibit is now free with regular admission through Sept. 28th at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.     Our two year old was still a bit too short unfortunately to actually be able to reach any of the stingrays, but he enjoyed watching them swim by.    Besides, now that it’s a bit cooler, the rest of the zoo animals will be more active and interesting to see as well!

TOUCH! is Now Free at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
TOUCH! Amazing Rays & Sharks will be free for everyone for the rest of its run at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. The Zoo is celebrating the end of a great summer by waiving the special admission fee for TOUCH!, which closes for the season on Sunday, September 28.

So far this summer, more than 235,000 people have experienced TOUCH!, a seasonal attraction that allows visitors to reach into an 11,000-gallon saltwater pool and feel the smooth skin of small sharks and stingrays. Now in its third year, TOUCH! features dozens of cownose rays, Southern red stingrays, nurse sharks, bamboo sharks and horseshoe crabs.

Regular Zoo admission is still required.

Northeast Ohio’s most-visited year-round attraction, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. Admission is $10 per person, $6 for kids ages 2 to 11 and free for children under 2 and Zoo members. Parking is free. Located at 3900 Wildlife Way, the Zoo is easily accessible from Interstates 71, 77, 90 and 480.

  1. It is always fun to watch a child at the zoo, even more so when you can take them to an event where they can touch the animals. They seem to remember it much longer then just looking at animals over a fence.
    All the times I have been to events like Touch! the line was usually quite long. Still worth the wait.
