This Spring is bringing a record number of visitors to Nashville Zoo. On April 7th – the day of the zoo’s annual Eggstravaganzoo event - the zoo received just over 12,000 guests, a record for a single day’s attendance. March attendance was also a record at 105,270. Last year’s March attendance, a then record, was 67,647.
The zoo puts this success down to the success off the new DinoTtrek exhibit and the unseasonally warm weather.
Rick Schwartz, Nashville Zoo President said, “The addition of DinoTrek has proven to be extremely popular with guests and certainly exceeded our expectations. DinoTrek attendance in March was 200% above projections, and our overall attendance is currently trending 63 % above projections. We are very excited that the public has responded so well to this unique exhibit.”
“The high volume days we have experienced this spring certainly solidify our standing as Middle Tennessee’s number one attraction,” said Schwartz. “As the Zoo becomes more and more popular, our focus turns to improving infrastructure, particularly our entrance and parking system, that will improve the overall guest experience and help us grow into the future.”
The zoo has a number of projects planned for the summer, including:
