Party Rules

  • Birthday parties are two hours. Guests have a reserved space in the carousel and may walk throughout the zoo.  Guests are welcome to arrive early and stay in the Zoo after the party, but the party space is available for the designated time only.
  • Guests may bring their own food or have it catered, but all food must remain in the Pavilion.
  • The following items are not allowed: Balloons, piñatas, confetti, stickers, and silly string.
  • Service road access may only be utilized during extreme weather conditions, for guests with mobility issues, or to deliver larger items that cannot be transported in a wagon.
  • Final payment is due the end of the party. Please pay at the admission desk.
  • Party guests with memberships still count towards the guest count, as they are not just visiting the Zoo, but are attending the party.
  • Parties may only arrive up to 10 minutes early to account for cleanup and sanitizing.
  • Parties are also asked to pack up no longer than 5 minutes after their party time.
