AN ADVENTURE LIKE NONE OTHER!
Are you looking for the ultimate Animal Adventure for yourself, your family or some special friends? If so, the Backstage Experience at Denver Zoo is a must! In addition to the many amazing animals you will meet behind the scenes, your knowledgeable host will point out the unique features of our award-winning exhibits and tell personal stories about the animals that call Denver Zoo home. You will leave feeling like an insider, with memories to last a lifetime.
Come experience the zoo that most guests will never see. Your exclusive access takes you behind the scenes, up close and hands-on! 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! Participate in a feeding or training demonstration and learn how the keepers provide excellent care for such a diverse collection. Then prepare to be dazzled by the stars of our summer Wildlife Show, including colorful parrots, majestic raptors, man’s best friend and even an African serval! Finish your tour in Tropical Discovery, home to all things slithery, slimy and scaly. Here you may come face to face with a komodo dragon, take a birds’-eye look at our 16,000- gallon Pacific Reef tank, or meet a frog thought to be extinct in the wild.
