Event Details

Join us for EggStravaganZoo on Saturday, March 30th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The adorable, elusive slither-hoppers – a species only found here! – will once again be hiding throughout the Zoo, just waiting for you to find them.

Grab an EggStravaganZoo Activity Sheet on your way in to keep track of how many slither-hoppers you find. As you hunt for the slither-hoppers, keep your eyes peeled for Candy Stations, too! They’re back this year and scattered all around the zoo. Don’t miss a visit and photos with the EggStravaganZoo Bunny in the Mayan Restaurant! Guests can also see the animals and (weather-permitting) ride the carousel. Before you leave, stop at the Prize Table, where kids will receive a special prize. The Neil Anderson Canopy Tour will also be open throughout the day, with Canopy Tour tickets available online in advance or at the Adventure Park Base Camp building.

EggStravaganZoo FAQS

Do I have to buy tickets online in advance or can I just show up that day?

You do not have to buy tickets online in advance and can definitely just come to the event that day. People with pre-purchased tickets will be able to enter through our Event Gate with a quick-scanning process. Individuals buying tickets on arrival just need to enter through the Visitor Center main entrance building to buy your tickets there.

I’m a Zoo Member. How do I receive my ticket discount when purchasing online?
