Are you interested in the exclusive access provided by our Backstage Experience adventure but concerned that three hours is just a bit too long for your group? This streamlined version hits many of the same high points and is perfect for groups with younger children!
Your private tour guide will escort you through our Education animal collection where you might touch a turtle, spend time with snakes, laugh with a kookaburra or be tickled by a tamandua’s tongue! Lots of up-close encounters wrap up with a fun feeding or training demonstration. Then it’s off to meet the stars of our summer Wildlife Show, where parrots, birds of prey, and mammals both prickly and cuddly will strut their stuff! When the entertainment wraps up there, you are free to enjoy the zoo at your leisure.
Adults and young children who would love an insider’s look at some of the zoo’s most popular attractions!
Flexible dates for booking, subject to availability—call early for best selection. Preregistration and four days notice required. Only one Backstage Experience Junior can be offered on a given day.
Tour from 9:15−10:45 a.m., then enjoy the zoo at your leisure!
$95 per person. Zoo admission is included. Maximum group size is eight.
Backstage Experience Junior Gift Certificates are available
