Backstage Adventures: Individual Programs
If you have always dreamed of being a zookeeper, now is your chance! And, you can also, work side by side with zookeepers as they care for penguins or kangaroos. Whether you love birds or snakes, big animals, or little critters--we have a Wild Encounter just for you.
Get started by choosing the animal you like best or your favorite exhibit. Try one or try them all-the adventures are endless!
Want to share the experience with someone special? Many of our Backstage Adventures: Individual Programs offer substantial savings when you bring a friend or relative to share the experience.
