Parties, Rentals, Etc.

Party Packages

Perfect for birthdays, graduations, and more – these party packages are meant to be “full-service” packages. They include admission, cake, drinks, plus fun activities for all guests.  Learn more.

In-Zoo Room Rentals

If you’re not looking for a full-service party package, a Zoo Rental is another alternative. You can rent our Safari Clubhouse or our Education Classroom for up to 3 hours for $75 or for a full day for $150 (plus tax). You would be responsible for cleaning the room and returning it to its original state before you leave. Zoo Admission would apply to all your party guests.  Any food or dessert items brought to the zoo, delivered, or catered-in must be from a licensed baker, restaurant, or grocery store (in unopened packages). Home-made food items are not permitted into the zoo.  Full payment for the rental is due upon booking.  Contact our Education Coordinator to check for available dates or complete this form to submit your request.

Outdoor Space Rentals

For $150 (plus tax) per day, you can rent the NEW Zoo’s outdoor Special Events area. You could then work with any professional rental company to reserve a tent, tables, chairs, decorations, etc. – anything that you need to complete your get-together and provide for your guests.  Admission to the zoo is not included with the rental fee and must be paid for all guests. You can choose to have food catered into the zoo (we are happy to provide a list of recommended caterers!), or work with our restaurant staff to have food provided by the NEW Zoo. Contact our Operations Manager for additional details.

Shelter Rentals

The Brown County Parks Department oversees the rentals of the two shelters located directly across from and beside the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park: the Pines Shelter and the Reforestation Camp Ski Lodge. To learn more, visit the Parks Department website.
