We know birthdays are special days in a child's life. What better way to celebrate your little animal lover than by hosting an unforgettable party at the zoo, filled with animals, fun, and exclusive experiences to treasure forever?

We provide the highest quality food, fun, and entertainment. Whether tossing a fish to our sea lions, playing zookeeper and making lunch for the snow monkeys, or getting to meet one of our Central Park penguins, your child will experience the zoo as never before—and have a birthday to remember for many years to come.

Our parties are complete zoo experiences, with every detail covered by our dedicated staff. Because we want you to have fun, too!
