Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I get tickets?

You can purchase your tickets online at AudubonInstitute.org, you may choose the “print at home” option in which your tickets will be e-mailed to you and you may print them from any computer or you can choose to have your tickets placed at Will Call.  No tickets will be mailed.  Please double check the night for which you are purchasing.  Sold out Nights will be removed from the ticketing system, so please note the date before you finalize your purchase.

  • If I choose to have my tickets placed at Will Call, when and where can I get my tickets?

You will receive an e-mail with a confirmation number once you have placed your online order for tickets.  You will need to bring this confirmation number to a ticket window at any Audubon facility during normal operating hours in order to pick up your tickets. No tickets will be mailed.

  • What should I do if I lose my ticket?

If you chose the “print at home” option, you can reprint the ticket from the e-mail that was sent to you.  Note that each ticket has a unique barcode and is only valid for one use. Once a ticket is scanned upon entrance, any duplicates will be voided and admission will be denied.

If you picked up your online ticket order at Will Call, your order can be looked up and tickets reprinted at the facility, however, the original tickets will be voided and admission will be denied.

  • Am I allowed to bring in food and/or beverages?

No ice chests or outside food and beverage will be allowed with the exception of baby food/formula. Food and drinks will be available for purchase inside the event.

  • Do Audubon members receive a discount on tickets?

Boo at the Zoo Presented is a fundraiser for Children’s Hospital and Audubon Zoo. No ticket discounts are offered.

 For questions regarding your order, call 1-800-774-7394, for all other questions call 1-504-861-2537.

  • I cannot make it for the night for which I purchased tickets--can I switch them for another night?

Tickets will be honored ONLY for the night purchased.  You are welcome to sell your tickets to another person and purchase tickets for another night--providing there are tickets available.  Boo at the Zoo is a sell out event.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • How do I get tickets?

You can purchase your tickets online at AudubonInstitute.org, you may choose the “print at home” option in which your tickets will be e-mailed to you and you may print them from any computer or you can choose to have your tickets placed at Will Call.  No tickets will be mailed.  Please double check the night for which you are purchasing.  Sold out Nights will be removed from the ticketing system, so please note the date before you finalize your purchase.

  • If I choose to have my tickets placed at Will Call, when and where can I get my tickets?

  • What should I do if I lose my ticket?

If you chose the “print at home” option, you can reprint the ticket from the e-mail that was sent to you.  Note that each ticket has a unique barcode and is only valid for one use. Once a ticket is scanned upon entrance, any duplicates will be voided and admission will be denied.
