Sip+Dip at Audubon Cool Zoo

Splash into wild summer fun at the first Sip+Dip at Audubon Cool Zoo. Sip+Dip on Saturday, July 27, includes adults-only afterhours access to Cool Zoo, including the splash pad and Gator Run lazy river.

Guests can play outdoor games, enjoy live entertainment, and cruise down the lazy river at this 21+ takeover of the popular water park.

Tickets to Sip+Dip are $30 per person. The Audubon Member discount does not apply for this afterhours event. Three complimentary drinks along with two light bite options will be included in the ticket price. Additional drinks and a limited menu will be available for purchase. Tickets are available online.

“Audubon Cool Zoo is known as the hot spot to cool off for children and families during the summer in New Orleans,” said Audubon Nature Institute Vice President of Marketing Katie Smith. “New this summer, for one night only, we’re transforming it into the perfect oasis for adults to take a dip, sip a cocktail, and enjoy Cool Zoo afterhours, opening up a world of unique experiences for the kid in all of us.”

Cool Zoo, a wild and wet splash park, is one of the top water parks in New Orleans and a hot spot to cool down at Audubon Zoo. Highlights include jumping waterspouts, a huge alligator water slide, spider monkey soakers, and water-spitting snakes.

Gator Run, Cool Zoo’s lazy river, features a 750-foot lazy river with two sand beaches, lounge chairs, four water cannons, two water curtains, and jumping jets. The lazy river is three feet deep and takes approximately seven minutes to make a round trip.

Cool Zoo and Gator Run are located beside the Gottesman Family Endangered Species Carousel inside Audubon Zoo. This afterhours event is exclusively for adults ages 21 and over.
