Which tickets to purchase? General Admission or Total Experience? We are two adults tourists. I read that Asian Monorail is a "must see." If we purchase the General Admission, how much will this extra cost us. And how about the in-park tram. Extra fee also if only purchasing General Afmission? Thanks.

I'm a member of the Zoo so my pass includes all attractions. Personally I would go for the Total Experience (World of Darkness, Wild Asia, the carousel, children's Zoo, any everything else). Enjoy!
Is Friday or Saturday a better day to go to the Bronx Zoo? (June 30th or July 1st)
