We are limiting the number of guests in the Zoo for the day. We highly recommend reserving your timed tickets online prior to arrival. This will ensure your entry as we cannot guarantee tickets will be available for walk-up ticket purchases.

Reserve your tickets today to meet these superheroes through this link

Please note, characters are subject to change.

Please note, our meet-and-greets will be different this year. Instead of individual photo opportunities with each character, your family will have the chance to meet and take photos with a group of characters on the beautiful Bissell Tree House deck. For the safety of our performers and our guests, these magical interactions will be from a safe distance of 6 feet apart. 

There will be ground markers in front of each character's location to allow your family to capture the perfect, socially distanced, photo! Please stay on the guest side of the stanchion barriers between the characters and the guests. 

Also, per the State of Michigan, for all indoor public spaces at the Zoo, anyone who is age five (5) years and older, and who can medically tolerate a mask must wear one. In addition, if you cannot maintain six feet distance from other guests, are age five (5) years and older, and can medically tolerate a mask, you must wear one outdoors. We ask that you please bring a mask with you to the Zoo. This will help you be prepared should you find yourself in a situation where your group is unable to socially distance.
