Adulting with the Animals

Explore the Zoo with Your Kid-Free Crew

On select Thursdays this summer, you can explore our beautiful 80-acre campus—and connect with our 3,000 wild, wonderful animals—in a casual adults-only environment with tons of festive extras!

Stroll our shady, meandering paths with a summery craft cocktail, while strains of live music fill the air. Make a friend with fins at Stingray Cove,™ or enjoy an enchanting live Animal Demo or two as you cruise the Zoo. With laid-back, kid-free vibes, you and your crew will have a unique opportunity to see a fresh new side of Denver’s wildest gathering place.

Upgrade to our guided Prowl + Growl package for exclusive animal experiences and a walking trivia contest with the chance to win a limited-edition growler cup—or just freestyle it with your friends! Adulting has never been so easy.
