Add-On Experiences to Enhance Your Wild Birthday Celebration

Whether your kiddo absolutely loves scaly critters or prefers our fluffier animal residents, we offer several add-on experiences that are sure to make your kid’s birthday party at the Zoo extra special! The first of these add-ons is an additional animal show. During these shows you could meet any of our birthday ambassadors. From Tilly our brown lemur to Ali our gator, there is sure to be one you would like to meet! While each birthday package already includes one animal show, many of our birthday guests want to meet as many of our animal ambassadors as possible! Some other popular add-ons are our petting zoo feed and mealworm feed. These options are particularly popular add-ons since guests can get them at discounted rates when purchased together! Give your birthday kid the gift of feeding adorable animals from all over the world when you purchase these incredible add-on experiences!

One birthday celebration add-on that is perfect for budding geologists and rock enthusiasts is our extreme mining experience! When you purchase this add-on experience, you and your party guests will travel through time to pan for radiant gemstones, minerals, and fossils. If this fun-filled experience interests you, you can read more about what to expect during a trip to our very own gemstone mine in our Two Rivers Mining Co. blog!

Now that we’ve talked all about birthday party ideas to make your kiddo’s birthday party at the Zoo as amazing as possible, it’s time to introduce you to our party animal ambassadors! While these animals don’t understand why us humans get so excited about birthdays, they are the life of the party and can’t wait to celebrate with you and your little one! The first animal ambassadors we will be introducing you to are Joe and Janet, our fennec foxes. Besides serving as living proof that good things come in small packages (or presents!), these cuties are very friendly and love to meet new people! Check out these fun-filled birthday celebration pictures to see how much our guests love these adorable canids!

You can also book a private animal show with two of our lemur species! Since it can be difficult to choose between these darlings, here’s a little more information about them! During your brown lemur show, you will get to meet Tilly. Watch in awe as she climbs around on her zookeeper’s back while making adorable oinking noises! You can also meet Chili, one of our gorgeous red ruffed lemurs. Chili is an inquisitive little lady who is known for her gentle demeanor and playful nature!

As we move onto discussing our reptile animal ambassadors, we wanted to start with our charming snakes! If you have a soft spot for small snakes, you’ll absolutely love Ruby, our corn snake. A private animal show with this colorful snake is perfect for kiddos who want to handle a snake all by themselves! If you’re looking for more of a challenge during your birthday celebration at the Zoo, you can book a show with Simon or Leo, our GIANT Burmese pythons. While these snakes are much bigger than Ruby, you are sure to be pleasantly surprised by how gentle these snakes are!

Next up on our wonderful animal ambassador lineup are our scaly crocodilians! If you’re hoping to meet a tiny crocodilian, we highly recommend booking a show with our surprisingly adorable dwarf crocs. Since it is incredibly rare for dwarf crocs like Snip and Snap to be born in human care, this private animal show has become immensely popular among young reptile lovers! Meet Snip and Snap during your little one’s birthday party to discover just how adorable these critters are first hand! The next animal ambassador we get to introduce you to is Ally, our small and spunky American alligator! If you attended our Greater Gator show this summer, you’ve likely already met Ally. This little lady is a charismatic gator who can’t wait to meet your kiddo during their wild birthday at the Zoo!A zoo guest holding one of our baby dwarf crocodiles.

Last but certainly not least, you can also meet our cute pancake tortoises! Besides learning all about how cool these little guys are, you and your birthday guests can marvel at their incredibly flat shells up close. If you absolutely adored our exclusive Interactive Tortoise Feeding show this summer, you are sure to fall in love with Flap Jack and Waffles, our pancake tortoises!
