The ZOOper Birthday Party will require a $150 deposit due at the time of booking. Once payment is received, your party will be reserved on the calendar. Final payment will be due 10 days prior to your scheduled event.

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.

ZOOper Birthday guests will be able to enjoy the Zoo as early as 9 a.m. When you arrive at the Zoo, be sure to proceed to the Main Entrance gate near the Wayne M. Densch Discovery Center. Everyone must have a general admission ticket to enter the Zoo. All Zoo admission tickets will be emailed to the party booker in advance of the ZOOper Birthday Party date.

Once a ticket has been scanned, it cannot be reused (duplicate tickets will not allow entry).

Please be aware that while your party is welcome to enjoy a full day at the Zoo, your group will only have access to the party space for one (1) hour. The Zoo cannot accommodate storage requests for decorations, gifts, desserts, etc. outside of your designated party time.

On the day of your ZOOper Birthday Party, we will have your reserved party room, decorations, paper products and supplies ready for you upon your designated party time (10 a.m. or 1 p.m.).

You may enter the party room 15 minutes before your designated party time.

An Events team member will be on-site during your party time to assist you as needed.

Contact us for more information on adding animal encounters and catering to your party!

Please be sure all gifts, food and personal belongings are removed from your party space at your designated ending time. At the end of your party time, we are unable to store any of your additional belongings as we have several parties in one day.

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

Contact our team to add these special experiences to your party!
