  1. Please arrive at our office at least 15 minutes before your guests arrive. At this time, we can take your cake and refrigerate it, if needed.
  2. Please advise us as to the number of guests you are expecting; you will be given a wrist band for each guest attending.
  3. Please have all guests gather in front of the zoo entrance so you may distribute wrist bands to each guest (all wrist bands must be on before entering the children’s zoo.)
  4. Please grab a wagon or two for any presents, etc. you may have.
  5. When your scheduled party is ready to begin, notify the office and we will have your host/hostess escort your group to the birthday barn. Please keep in mind your birthday barn schedule, as there is no flexibility in that time frame due to other parties following.
  6. During your party, if you would like to purchase any additional food or drinks, your host/hostess will be happy to accommodate you.
  7. At the end of your scheduled birthday barn time (50 mins,) your host/hostess will give you your final bill to be paid at that time.
  8. Due to limited space, we ask that you designate an adult to transport all presents to your vehicle immediately after your bill is paid.
  9. We have refrigeration available for any leftover cake while you and your guests continue to enjoy the zoo.
  10. Please arrange for any children to be picked up at your original gathering place outside of the zoo entrance. Keep in mind parents cannot enter the zoo to get their child without paying zoo admission. If assistance is needed, please come to the front office.
