The time of your party is for eating cake and singing Happy Birthday. You can enjoy the Zoo before and after your party. Animal encounters take place during this rented time. The train and carousel may be enjoyed before or after your event.

Please leave all unwanted items on the tables for the Rentals department to properly dispose of for you!

Should your event extend past the agreed-upon scheduled time allotment, you will be charged at a premium rate for additional time.

Animal encounters are subject to the weather and the animal's health and are therefore not guaranteed. You will be informed of any changes prior to your event. Please note, animal encounters cannot take place between 12:00 and 1:00 p.m.
