Participate in an animal presentation then enjoy a short walk down to the Jordan Creek. End your birthday by cooling off in the creek while looking for and learning about aquatic creatures with one of our conservation educators.  *This party is recommended for children 4 years and older.

Butterfly Themed: Create a whimsical theme for your birthday party by making it butterflies. Enjoy beautiful butterfly decorations, green plates, and even “flying” butterflies on your cake! Meet some animals up close then get outside for our Zoo Tour, learn about our exhibit animals and maybe even catch a glimpse of a wild butterfly or two!

RAD Themed: Go green with our new Reptile and Amphibian Discovery Themed party! Green plates, turtles, frogs, and other reptiles will decorate your room. Reptiles and amphibians “crawl” across your cake, as well as live reptiles come to visit your party for an up-close experience. Next go outside into the zoo for a guided tour and learn about reptiles as well as the other animals that inhabit the Zoo.
*Coming Soon: Featured for this theme is a guided tour through the new RAD Center which will give guests a wild and amazing look at some unique reptiles and amphibians!

Penguin Themed: Penguins are the theme for this exciting party! Enjoy a Zoo tour guided by a conservation educator, then come inside and experience a visit from one of the Zoo’s African Penguins! Your room will be decorated with penguin décor and fish plates, and your cake will feature a water theme with a penguin on top!
