The VIAP Package is our most popular adventure! Join us behind the scenes of our large carnivore enclosures and see their morning routine. Hang out with two of our "Wild Things" and snap some amazing photos. Head down to our Pachyderm area and see where our elephants hang out at night. Follow this experience up by giving one of our elephants a bath, taking some once-in-a-lifetime pictures, and giving the elephant a snack. Round out your day with a deli-style catered lunch. Your V.I.A.P Package will begin at 10:30 AM and last approximately 3 hours.
Zoo admission on the day of your scheduled V.I.A.P Package is included. The zoo is open 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM daily. You are welcome to visit the zoo at any time during these open hours.
