Overnight Birthday Packages

Why not crash at the Zoo instead of sleeping in your own living room? Invite up to 25 of your friends to spend the night in our Zoo with a Chehaw party host. This exclusive sleepover includes fun animal encounters, a nighttime trip to the Zoo, games, prizes, smores and concludes snuggling up and watching a movie on the big screen. The next morning, party guests join a zookeeper for a behind-the-scenes encounter. Overnight parties include a birthday cake, paper products, lemonade, water, snacks, and a light continental breakfast.

Overnight birthday party drop-off is at 7 p.m. and pick-up 9:30 a.m. the next morning. A Chehaw party host will spend the night for a whole evening of fun.

  • Packages begin at $500 (up to 10 children)
  • Additional children ( 1-5 children): $50
  • Additional children (6-15 children): $45
