Knoxville Zoo offers $5 Admission for guests who know what the fox says

KNOXVILLE — Inspired by the internet sensation making everyone wonder what the fox really says, Knoxville Zoo is offering $5 admission to guests who give their best take on one of the possibilities featured in the popular You Tube music video beginning Saturday, November 2nd through Friday, November 8th.

Since the offbeat song by the Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis offers a wide variety of possible things a fox may say, guests can offer their favorite interpretation at the zoo’s ticket window to receive a discounted admission of $5 to Knoxville Zoo for themselves and their accompanying party from Saturday, November 2nd through Friday, November 8th.

“We’re hoping our guests have a lot of fun with this promotion,” says Alison Travis, director of Marketing at Knoxville Zoo. “It’s a little silly, but that’s the whole point, really. It’s a way you can start having fun before you even come through our gates, which we think is a wonderful way to start your visit.”

Those not familiar with the “What Does the Fox Say” video can find a link on Knoxville Zoo’s Facebook page and Twitter profile. The zoo encourages sharing of the unconventional promotion with friends and family via social media.

The $5 admission is valid only at the zoo’s ticket window from November 2nd through November 8th and cannot be combined with any other discount or coupon.

Knoxville Zoo is Knoxville’s largest year-round attraction. Located off exit 392 from Interstate 40, the zoo is open every day except Christmas Day. Knoxville Zoo is nationally accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and is committed to the highest standards in animal care and well-being, ethics, conservation, and education. Currently, the zoo is open daily from 10:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Admission and ticket sales stop one-hour before the zoo closes. Next-day admission is free after 3 p.m. For more information, please call 865-637-5331 or visit
