Birthday & Other Party Packages

COVID-19 UPDATE: Changes have been made to our parties to ensure guest, staff, and animal safety. Face coverings are required by everyone aged 3 and above when inside buildings (except when eating/drinking). During parties, we do spend quite a bit of time outdoors whenever weather permits.

Come celebrate your birthday or other special event with us – we’ve got the WILDEST parties in town! The NEW Zoo provides a fun and entertaining party package for you to celebrate a special day.
*Please note: We are unable to take reservations for parties or room rentals during the month of October.
