Parrots

A safe + socially distanced parrot encounter with your pod

Join us for an exclusive meet and greet with a fine-feathered flock of friendly Animal Ambassadors: parrots! With this special and intimate experience, you'll have the opportunity to "buy out" a parrot encounter for up to six members of your pod. You'll meet multiple species of parrot, including the amazing African grey—which has extensive vocabularies of words, songs, mimicked sounds and other unique vocalizations. You'll also meet the knowledgeable animal care experts who keep our parrots happy and healthy, and even watch them conduct a training session!

PLEASE NOTE: This experience includes exclusive interactions with animal care experts and the ability to see animals that live behind the scenes. Due to safety regulations, guests will not have direct contact with the animals.
