Kid's Night Out

Parents enjoy a kid free evening and kids enjoy a zoo adventure! Skip the hassle of finding a sitter and send kids over to the zoo for a fun filled evening.

Participants must be 4-12 years of age. Kids may be grouped according to age for certain activities. 

$25/child, $20 for each additional child living in the same household.
