Animal Encounters - Kangaroo
Meet our Kangaroos
Open Daily 9am-3:30pm, weather permitting.
Our Kangaroo Encounter is a wonderful way to learn about young red kangaroos through this up-close, hands-on experience. Let our zoo's friendly and knowledgeable staff teach you about these lovable Aussie creatures while having a memorable experience. Depending on their age, they can be gently held or touched while they hop and play around the enclosure. And they are definitely not camera-shy, so be ready to take fantastic photos!
Each encounter ticket is $19.95 per person, plus a regular paid zoo admission. Tickets can be purchased with admission or in the park. Children under age 10 must be accompanied by a paying adult. No reservations are required.
What to Know
This encounter is in a secure, keeper-supervised environment, and appropriate for all ages. However, we reserve the right to make last minute decisions regarding the group size to ensure that it’s a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests, our keepers, and most especially, our roos. Holding the kangaroos is not guaranteed.
The kangaroo exhibit is in an open-air setting. If the weather conditions are questionable, please call ahead to check if we are still selling tickets. Encounters are not available during inclement weather.
