Give your child a once-in-a-lifetime birthday adventure. Children, ages 1 to 12, will enjoy a festive celebration in a private room with our great zoo staff to run the party for you. Guests experience up-close visits from some of our favorite animals, participate in party activities and games, and explore the amazing Congo Gorilla Forest exhibit with our expert education staff as their guides. It's a junior safari not to be missed!


Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30am–12:30pm or 2:00–4:00pm.
