Parking tickets also have to be secured before arriving at the zoo, and a parking fee of $15 per vehicle still applies, according to the zoo.

Only outdoor animal exhibits are accessible to guests as the Brookfield Zoo follows Phase 4 guidelines from the state, according to a release.

In December, the free days move to Mondays and Tuesdays.

"Dinos Everywhere!," which features 40 animatronic dinosaurs, is still open to the public through November 1.
