Meijer EggStravaganZoo

Purchase Tickets

The NEW Zoo & Adventure Park is pleased to partner this year with Meijer, the one-stop shopping supercenter opening in Howard later this year, to present Meijer EggStravaganZoo on Saturday, April 15, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Meijer EggStravaganZoo will include a family-friendly scavenger hunt to find treat stations for kids (and even some stations for adults, too!).  All the delicious treats at our Candy Stations this year are generously provided by Meijer – so you’re sure to enjoy filling your baskets! Every family or group that enters the zoo will receive a Scavenger Hunt Card to help guide you around the facility to find Candy and Game Stations.  Before leaving the zoo, turn in your Hunt Card at the Visitor Center, where each child will receive a special prize before leaving.

Throughout the event, visitors can meet the Easter Bunny, enjoy kids’ games, animal encounters, ride the carousel, and (weather permitting) play on two large inflatables.  We will also have face painting AND The Dog Haus will be here to serve up their fantastic fresh deep-fried cheese curds!

New this year: everyone who comes in wearing a “Spring Bonnet or Baseball Cap” (any spring-themed decorated hat*) will receive a prize, and both kids and adults are welcome to join in! Be creative -or just a little crazy- and have some fun getting into the springtime spirit.

Tickets for Meijer EggStravaganZoo will be available for $10 in advance at the Zoo Visitor Center, Suamico Citgo, and online beginning April 1st. There will be a Fast Lane to enter the Zoo for people with advanced tickets and for Zoo Pass Members who are using their one free ticket for this event. Members must be sure to have their photo ID’s and Zoo Pass Cards with them to check-in at the Fast Lane gate.  Tickets at the door on the day of the event will be $12. Kids under 3 are free.

The Adventure Park will be open with Zip Line Rides and Ropes Course Packages available from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. At no extra cost, all people riding the zip line have a chance to win a free same-day zip by participating in the “Zoo Zip Egg Drop Challenge.”  Drop an egg in the basket from the zip line to WIN!

EggStravaganZoo Event 2015

The fun-filled day will kick off with a huge Easter egg hunt throughout the Zoo between 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Each child (age 2 to 15) will have the chance to collect up to 10 plastic Easter eggs and redeem them, one at a time, for candy at one of the many color-specific treat stations throughout the Zoo. The hunt is finding the right color station for your colored eggs! Each child participant can also stop at the Visitor Center on their way out to pick-up a final fun prize of their choice.

Throughout the event, visitors can meet the Easter Bunny at our free photo-op in the Amphitheater, enjoy free games and carousel rides, meet the NEW Zoo costume mascots and the Klements’ Sausage Runners (starting at 12:00pm), and new for 2015: we’re asking guests to get into the spring-time spirit by participating in our Marshmallow Peeps Show!

Guests who bring in a decorated marshmallow Peeps or Peeps display will be entered for a chance to win a prize package from the zoo. Winners will be announced on our Facebook page after the event. You do not need to be present to win. Peeps and Peeps scenes can be decorated however you choose* – so be creative! You must put your name, phone number and/or email address on your submission, and displays should be no more than two feet wide by two feet deep and must be able to stand alone on a table-top for display in the Education & Conservation Center during the event.

Tickets for EggStravaganZoo will be available at the door and will include admission to the Zoo as well as the annual Easter Egg Hunt. The cost to join in the fun is just $8 per child (age 2 to 15), $7 per adult, $5 for seniors, kids 1 & under free. Annual Memberships will also be available for purchase.  Please note, there will NOT be a Pancake & Porkie Breakfast this year.  A selection of breakfast rolls and pastries will be available in the Mayan Restaurant.
