To Our Valued Guests

While we know it has been a very long waiting time, York's Wild Kingdom is happy to announce that we are planning to open our zoo on June 20th 2020. Unfortunately, the amusement park will stay closed for the 2020 season. It was a very hard decision to make but we think it will be the best and safest option for our team members and guests.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, our opening day, hours, rules and exhibits are subject to change. We are closely following all the federal, state and local government guidelines to ensure everyone's safety.

We will post all the available updates on our facebook and at 

Once again, we appreciate your understanding and support during these challenging times.

Thank you and stay safe. 

Your zoo needs your support more than ever

Together, we are facing a truly unprecedented situation. The global coronavirus pandemic is affecting all of our families, our businesses, our communities, and our way of life.

York’s Wild Kingdom is closely monitoring the coronavirus situation and continually evaluating information and recommendations from the state of Maine and of the CDC. This has led us to postpone our 2020 season opening date. We are planning on reopening as soon as safely possible.

As we approach what would be our busiest time of the year, this closure will have a significant financial impact on York’s Wild Kingdom. To help replace funds normally generated through ticket sales we are asking for your help. Please consider making a donation to our Emergency Operating Fund. Just like our animals, anything big or small can have an impact.

York’s Wild Kingdom is privately owned, open seasonally, and does not receive any state or federal funding. The Emergency Fund proceeds go directly towards veterinary care, diets, enrichment, heating, exhibit maintenance, the design of new exhibits, paying our dedicated staff, and the many other expenses involved in housing and caring for animals year-round.

Please consider making a contribution to our Emergency Fund. No amount is too small, and every generous contribution helps us ensure that all animals are well-fed, provided with enrichment, and are receiving any necessary veterinary care during this difficult time.

*Please be aware that financial gifts to York’s Wild Kingdom are not tax deductible.
