Meet our staff at Stone Zoo’s front gate 10-15 minutes before your scheduled encounter. If you are over 15 minutes late, your experience may be cancelled.

This opportunity is weather-dependent. In the case of rain, the feeding will be cancelled and tickets may be refunded or exchanged for another day.

Please note:

  • Only two people at a time are permitted in the feeding area at a time.
  • Close-toed shoes are recommended.
  • Tortoises move at their own special pace, so we cannot guarantee their activity level during your feeding session. There will be no direct touching or contact with our reptile friends, but we do hope you have a great time meeting them up close!

Playgroundsz Box


Slide, climb and swing your way through this colorful attraction that is, quite literally, the playground of your kids' dreams. The playground’s design is based off of elements from drawings made by children asked to put crayons to paper to create their dream playground. Those sketches have now become a reality, so come live the dream!
