The party leader will receive both children and adult party wristbands upon arrival. These are to then be handed out by the party leader before entry to Ticket Office. Please wait outside the entrance to the Ticket Office for the rest of your party.

When your guests have arrived, please put the wristbands onto the appropriate guests and show your wristbands upon entry. If there are any latecomers, we can hold the wristbands at the Ticket Office, along with their names. You can access the zoo from the opening time of 10:30 however, it is the party leader’s responsibility to hand out the wristbands before guests arrive (if the final numbers are submitted within the required time of at least 7 days, we can post out your wristbands and party pack before the party date for a small postage fee). Please call the office if you would like them posted out to you.

When at the zoo there is a party meeting point, in front of the Gift Shop. If you are coming to the zoo before your party time, you need to be at the meeting point at least 10 minutes before your party time to meet your host, who will take you to where you need to be.
