It’s always tea time

Join us for a morning of enchantment at the Zoo! Bring your little princes, princesses, superheroes, and fairy “tail” fanatics for a charming iced tea party where they’ll meet some of their favorite storybook characters and an animal ambassador. Guests will then gather in the Farmyard for story time with some of our barnyard friends including goats, alpacas, and more. You’ll have the rest of the day to explore the Zoo, enjoying unlimited train and carousel rides for a full day of magic.
