Please note: Confetti, glitter, piñatas, streamers and balloons are NOT ALLOWED on Zoo property for the safety of our animals.

ZOOper Birthday Party Package includes 10 children per party. Additional children may be added at $22 per child.

ZOOper Birthday Party Package is limited to two (2) adults per party. Additional adults not included in the original party may purchase general Zoo admission tickets at the Admissions window.

The ZOOper Birthday Party $300 fee will be due at the time of booking. Once payment is received, your party will be reserved on the calendar.

Working with our ZOOper Birthday Party team will provide you with the best experience. The ZOOper Birthday Party team will be in communication with the party booker to ensure all details are covered and your options are secured well in advance. Please complete the questionnaire by clicking the button below, and our team will get back to you as soon as possible.

Guests with general Zoo admission tickets arriving to enjoy the Zoo before the start of your ZOOper Birthday Party may proceed to the Main Entrance gate near the Wayne M. Densch Discovery Center. Everyone must have a general Zoo admission ticket to enter. Children and adult tickets will be emailed to the party booker in advance of the ZOOper Birthday Party date. Guests without previous admission may proceed to the main Admissions window at the front of the Zoo to purchase general Zoo admission tickets before entering through the Main Entrance gate.

We will not have access to reprint tickets already emailed for the day of your party. Be sure to have your tickets in a safe place and printed out for your guests to avoid added expense. Once a ticket has been scanned, it cannot be reused (duplicate tickets will not allow entry).

On the day of your ZOOper Birthday Party, we will have your party supplies, your picnic tables reserved, the birthday child’s table will be labeled with the birthday child’s name, and a special birthday gift will be placed on the birthday child’s table. These tables may be used throughout the day at your convenience. Please note these tables are not monitored by Zoo staff, so please have someone in your party monitor your space at all times.

Lunch will be brought to the children at the designated time by the ZOOper Birthday Party team. Please plan to be at your tables at the agreed upon time for lunch (arranged prior with the ZOOper Birthday Party team).

Lunch is provided for children only. Adults with valid Zoo admission may purchase lunch on their own inside the Zoo at the main concessions, Graze, located near the Wharton-Smith Tropical Splash Ground.

Because the party location is in our scenic picnic area, please be cautious of keeping food not in use covered and out of reach of wildlife. There are many birds and squirrels throughout the Zoo’s natural surroundings.

Please be sure all gifts, food and personal belongings are removed and not left unattended. We are not responsible for items left at the party site unattended.

Admission into the Zoo is valid for the entire day. Normal Zoo operating hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

Plan a special ZOOper Birthday Party at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens!
