The Space Zoo was released in version 1.8.0 on the 18th of May 2017. It can be unlocked when the player upgrades their Sky Zoo to Jungle 3, or when any Space Zoo zone is unlocked through a purchase with real money in the Shop. It is the hub for all Jurassic, Olympus, Garden and Great Wall animals. The Space Zoo is a rocket ship with an open top, powered by several rocket boosters at the entrance of the zoo, set in space.

The player must do the same to unlock new areas, except they can only upgrade the ship every 3 mission sets of 3, or every 9 missions.
Once the player unlocks and fully upgrades all habitats in that zone, they will receive one final mission set.
