Birthday Parties


Little Rock Zoo birthday parties combine fun with education. Guests will have an experience like no other, interacting with animals, learning about nature, and most of all, making memories!

Your special birthday party will include a private party room to enjoy, along with a private meet and greet with some special Educational Animal Ambassadors. Your party guests will have a reserved seating area to enjoy the Zoo Amphitheater Animal show, and the fun will conclude with a fantastic train ride on the Arkansas Diamond Express!    

A Zoo birthday party includes the following:

  • A show at the Civitan Amphitheater,
  • Animal meet and greet,
  • Cake (provided by customer) in the private party room,
  • Train passes for the Diamond Express, and 
  • Entry into the Zoo for the remainder of normal business hours.

*Note: These parties are for ages 3 and up. If a child is younger than 3, please ask us about an Over-the-Jumps Carousel party.
