Big Red's Party Barn

Big Red’s Party Barn is a separate room away from the animals to have your cake, food, gifts etc. Allows 90 minutes in the party barn for up to 25 total people (all heads are included, not just children), 1 cup of veggies per person for the critters, and unlimited petting zoo time before and after the booking.

The typical suggestion is that you spend your hour and a half in the barn with your gifts, food, etc. and then hang out with the animals before and/or after your party!

After Hours Rentals

The facility is exclusively yours closed to the public. 2 full hours 5:45-7:45pm. Up to 50 total headcount. (All heads are counted) Headcount beyond 50 is charged at $8/person up to a maximum of 75.
1 Veggie Feed Cup is included per person up to a maximum of 50. Beyond that they are $4/cup.
The party room is available for use if you would like to bring food, gifts, etc.

🐾🐾🐾OTTER ENCOUNTERS 🐾🐾🐾
IMPORTANT NOTE…
Insurance prohibits anyone under the age of 10 years old partaking in the Encounters.
These girls (Charlie's Angels) DO NOT snuggle or rest quietly in your lap. Do not purchase an encounter if cuddling and snuggling is what you want to do with them.
Unlike our previous babies from last year, those were hand raised by me from the age of 2 weeks old, these girls have been raised by their otter mom so they like to sleep and nap with otters, not people.
What to possibly expect with an Otter Encounter…
Just about anything but them sleeping, they view people as chew toys, obstacles to run around, sometimes up-and-over and do not like being picked up restrained or told what to do. They act like teenagers, thinking they are invincible and get mad at you when you tell them no.
They have sharp kitten like teeth and often play rough with you, as if you were part of their gang. For this reason, close toe shoes, pants and long sleeve shirts are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
The cost is $50 per person (2 person minimum, 5 person max) when you purchase encounters online through our website. The package includes your all day zoo pass.
The Package is not sold separately as the Otter Encounter is in the middle of the zoo.
The cost is $40 per person (2 person minimum, 5 person max) if all guests are already inside the zoo and a time spot is available.
There will be 5 encounter times per day for 25 minutes each.
 An employee will always be in with the Encounters to hopefully answer any and all questions, also to monitor our girl's safety as they haven't figured out how gravity can work against you while climbing on people.
PSA... if you do not agree with the stipulations of this post, no need to comment your opinion, just move on, thanks in advance.
Online booking will start this week through our website.
Charlie's Angels will be at the zoo every Thursday thru Sunday 11-5 for EVERYONE to view.
