COLORADO SPRINGS — A water main break caused the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo to close Friday morning, but zoo officials confirmed it would reopen at noon.

The water main break was discovered at 6 a.m., requiring the water to be shut off to the entire zoo.

"Both ice on roadways and a lack of access to restrooms and water within the Zoo created conditions that required closure to the public for today," the release stated.

Visitors who have advance tickets for 9 a.m. through 11:40 a.m. entry times will have refunds processed in the next few business days, according to the zoo.
