Hoppy Animal Encounters

Keep your eye out for some special animal encounters along the Zoo paths throughout the day!

How to beat the traffic & get to the eggs quicker

  1. Arrive early Traffic around the Zoo is particularly heavy on this day. We recommend arriving at least one hour in advance of the scheduled hunt for your child's age group. Allow plenty of time to park and get to Festival Field.
  2. Additional Parking & Entrance We will open the back part of the Zoo for overflow parking if needed.
  3. Members get through the ticket booth quicker. Membership expiring soon? We strongly encourage you to renew online before heading to the Zoo. You can use your email confirmation to show proof of membership.

During the event

  1. Pick up a schedule of events at the entrance. This will include times for all activities throughout the day.
  2. Don't forget the essentials. Egg basket/bag, camera and sunscreen.
  3. Missed the egg hunt for your age group? Younger children who miss their hunt may enter an older aged hunt, but older kids may not participate in lower age groups' hunts. Please only hunt once.
  4. It's not the number of eggs that matters. Every child receives a goodie bag regardless of the number of eggs collected. Redemption tents are adjacent to the egg hunt field.
  5. Spend more time with the Easter Bunny. Reserve your spot with our Early Riser Package. See details and pricing below.
