Primate Panorama Deck

Spanning seven acres of lushly forested land, Primate Panorama allows you to connect with multiple species of ape, monkey and lemur—and you could be hosting your event on a private deck, overlooking this amazing animal kingdom! Critically endangered western lowland gorillas and Sumatran orangutans roam freely in their separate spacious exhibits while you enjoy their antics from your umbrella-shaded table. Of all the event venues in Denver, only this one offers REAL monkey business.

Wildlife Plaza

Our newest open-air event venue, Wildlife Plaza, gives your guests access to the vibrant area opposite our state-of-the-art Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Animal Hospital, which opened last year. From the tiniest tree frog to a full-grown grizzly bear, the 22,000-square-foot Animal Hospital ensures that every one of our animals is able to receive the care they need—and this spacious plaza will cater to your every need, too! Shade structures included; enchanting Animal Ambassador meet-and-greets optional!
