Parties includes a 20-30 minute live up close and personal animal presentation exclusively for you and your guests. Although party guests cannot touch the animals, there will be an assortment of animal artifacts that can be viewed and touched during this time.
For the safety of our animals, we ask that you not bring balloons, styrofoam products, straws, glitter, confetti, or ribbon into the Zoo. These items can end up in exhibits and could be ingested by the animals. The Zoo will provide decorations as well as paper products for all parties. Additional decorations can be brought in, but cannot be hung on walls or from the ceiling. For the safety of all our party animals, we are unable to accommodate requests for Pinatas.
A non-refundable $50 deposit is required to reserve you date. The balance is due with your final guest count two weeks prior to your party date. Payment can be made by cash or any major credit card.
ZooAmerica Members, Ranger Scratch Kids Club Members and Hersheypark season pass holders call for information.
