Birthday Parties

Ever thought of doing something unusual for a child’s birthday party?

Got an animal lover in the family, and want to do something special for their birthday?

We have a range of birthday party packages to suit all budgets and activity types, to make a fun and unusual birthday party- not to be forgotten!

You’ll have access to our outdoor classroom- in the heart of the Zoo- which gives you a space to be based, and somewhere for you to bring your own cake!

We allow a set number of free adults per party to ensure adequate adult supervision- in the following ratios:

  • Age 4-7 years – 1:4  (1 adult to 4 Children)
  • 7-12 years – 1:6
  • 12-16 years – 1-8

Extra adults wishing to attend can do so at the standard adult cost of £5.

“My daughter had such a wonderful party with her friends at Reaseheath Zoo. The planning and communication was excellent and the party was a huge success.

The children were engaged and supported throughout the whole experience and Lisa (Education Officer) was very patient answering lots of questions from the children – and the adults!

The animal encounters were great fun and very informative. They especially loved the lemur experience and they thought it was very exciting to be able to go into areas normally closed off to the public.

The classroom was warm and cosy and a good place to recharge batteries with some lunch and birthday cake.

Thank you so much to the Reaseheath Animal Management team.”
