The Dallas Zoo's do-over Dollar Day was a success. As of 5:45 p.m. the zoo said 35,022 people walked through the gates on Tuesday.
That tally broke an all-time attendance record for the Dallas Zoo, surpassing the previous attendance record of 34,929 on a Dollar Day in July 2008.
After heavy rain ruined Dollar Day July 19, the zoo decided to schedule a second one Tuesday, Aug. 19. The next Dollar Day is scheduled for Nov. 26.
Admission to the zoo on Dollar Day is, you guessed it, $1. Hot dogs are also only $1 during Dollar Day. Regularly, admission to the zoo is $15 for adults and $12 for children and seniors.
As of 11 a.m. the Dallas Zoo said parking was no longer available on zoo grounds and vehicles were no longer allowed. The only way to get to the zoo now is by using Dallas Area Rapid Transit's Red Line.
