Are you looking for a more exclusive and in-depth look at Denver Zoo? If so, the Backstage Experience Junior is for you!
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 children who would love an insider’s look at some of the zoo’s most popular attractions!
Backstage Experience Juniors are available most Mondays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Call early for best selection! Preregistration and five days’ notice required. Only one experience can be offered on a given day, and are subject to staff availability.
Tour from 9:00−10:30 a.m., then enjoy the zoo at your leisure!
$95 per person. Zoo admission is included. Maximum group size is eight.
Closed-toed shoes, a comfortable shirt and pants or shorts. Dress for the weather! Portions of the tour will be held outside regardless of weather conditions.
Your signed confirmation sheet and a camera (photo opportunities will be provided).
