During this intimate 1.5 hour experience, you'll be treated like a VIP as we introduce you to furry, feathered, and scaly critter celebrities in our private show area. You'll even meet an animal star-in-training! Next, stroll over to our rhino exhibit to have an extremely close encounter of the friendly kind with two of the Zoo's biggest personalities. Our own paparazzi will be snapping photos throughout the program, so be ready for your close-up! A souvenir photo is included with your Backstage Pass, and you can purchase the rest after the program for a nominal fee.
As our VIP of the day, your special status continues even after the program ends. Just show your Backstage Pass, and you can take advantage of reserved seating at the shows at Wegeforth Bowl and Hunte Amphitheater and priority loading on bus tours (1-Day Pass or Bus Tour ticket required).
Tour times: 1:00pm.
Check in at the Backstage Pass Gate in Urban Jungle.
