Party Policies

Animal Program

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.

Restrictions

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.

Payment

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.

Discounts

ZooAmerica Members, Ranger Scratch Kids Club Members and Hersheypark season pass holders call for information.

Child drop off and pick up

Parents can drop off their children at the main entrance of the Zoo. Our party host will escort children to the birthday party room. The same procedure can be followed for pick up at the end of the party.

Additional Adult Attendees

Parents not included in the guest count may wish to visit the Zoo during the party. Parents can purchase an admission ticket to enter. Admission to the Zoo is $10.50 for ages 9-54 and $8.50 for ages 3-8 and 55+. While the adults are welcome to join the party in the Zoo, we ask that guests not included in the party count refrain from entering the birthday party room.
