Daytime Parties

With parties of 20 or more and pre registration, you can enjoy discounted admission prices .  You can either pre-purchase your tickets 2 weeks in advance from the day of your party or we can tally your guests at the door the day of your party.

Advanced Ticket Sales 

With pre-registration, you can pre-purchase your tickets 2 weeks in advance of your party and receive a discounted admission rate per ticket for your group.  These tickets must be picked up from Niabi Zoo prior to your party and handed out before entering Niabi Zoo.

Tally Your Guests at the Door

With pre-registration, we can tally your guests at the door.  Your guests must show identification or indicate they are with your group at the admission gate and Niabi Zoo staff will tally the number of guests in your group. A Visa, MasterCard or Discover will need to be on file with Zoo staff for this option and the total for your group will be charged at the end of the day.
