We have three party packages, each one offering a variety of animal-themed activities including games, crafts and a visit from a special animal guest to create a one-of-a-kind party experience. Parties are offered on Saturdays and Sundays with the party times of either 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. or 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. We do not offer parties on weekdays. Learn about our party packages in our birthday party information flyer.

We recommend parties for children ages 7 and older. The minimum age for a party is 6 years old and will be limited to 10 guests*. There is no maximum age for parties, even 80 year olds love animals!! We have even had Sweet 16 and Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrations!

*Guests counted in the party package are those partaking in the activities, eating any food we provide, and going home with a goody bag. Parents of children at parties are not counted in guest head count.
