COMMENTS FROM PAST VISITORS THAT BOOKED A BIRTHDAY PARTY:

"I just have to tell you how incredibly happy we were with the birthday party this weekend. our staff went above and beyond to make it a wonderful experience for our family. Katie and Jason were both incredibly calm and patient with our little bunch and we could not have asked for anything better. I am just again so thankful and appreciated all the care that was given to us at this party. We will recommend this to anyone who asks and will always speak highly of the experience we had!"

"I just wanted to let you that everyone had a great time and the Zoo staff was amazing! They did a great job of keeping the event on time and coordinating everything. There was a small issue that arose and the staff took immediately took action to fix it; one of the children in our group is autistic and was scared of the loud mowing right next to us. I would like to thank everyone and we can’t wait to come back!"
