Birthday Parties

Due to COVID-19 concern we will not be hosting any Birthday Parties for April and May 2021. We plan to offer parties beginning in June.

Looking for a cool and fun place to have your child's (or yours!) birthday party? Give that special child a truly unique day at Big Joel's Safari! 

Our Safari Birthday Package is $250.00 (+ tax) and requires a $100.00 non-refundable deposit to reserve.

What all does the our Safari Birthday Package include?

  • Admission for 10 kids and 10 adults to Big Joel's Safari 

  • Parents & up to four Grandparents of the Birthday Child are free

  • All kids receive a small souvenir feed cup & filled with feed for the animals

  • Access to the whole park

  • You and your guests get exclusive private access to the Safari Party Room for two hours (you receive 1/2 hour before your time to set up). The room has Safari themed decor and is climate controlled to keep cool or warm! During this time you have full access to the park and the party room.

  • Basic cups, plates, napkins, & utensils are provided

Additional Party Information

  • There is no set schedule of events for your birthday party here at the park, so you get to explore Big Joel's Safari at your own pace. The Safari Party Room does have to be cleared out at the end of your time, but you can stay in the park during our open hours.   

  • You are allowed to bring food & beverages (no alcohol) into the party room. All food must stay in the party room for the safety of our animals.

  • You can bring balloons into the party to decorate, but all balloons must stay in the party room for the safety of our animals. Party favors such as whistles or noise-making devices need to stay in the party room as well. 

  • All children must be supervised at all times while at the zoo.

  • Weather permitting extra activities here at the park will be operating such as our Keet Shack & Camel Rides. These are not included in the birthday party package. Pricing for these can be found under the "Things to Do" section of our website.

  • Have more than 10 adults or 10 children for your party? For additional guests over what is included in the birthday party package, it is $8.00 per child and $10.00 per adult (children receive one souvenir feed cup). You can also substitute if you have more adults attending than children or vice versa. For example: 12 adults & 8 children, there would be no additional fees

  • All Guests must check in at the front desk before entering the park

  • Please take the time to go over rules (check our "Zoo Rules" section) before your party
