What sound does a pumpkin make when it’s smashed by an 8,000 lb elephant? You’ll find out during this BRAND NEW breakfast offering!

Make your way to the elephant habitat before the Zoo opens for this unique dining experience. While enjoying a delicious breakfast you’ll want to have your camera ready: you’ll have a VIP view of the famous elephant pumpkin SMASH. The gourd times continue after your meal, when you’ll be treated to a special elephant keeper chat. Pumpkins, be afraid. Be very afraid.
