personal animal encounters!

By popular demand, WWA is adding a new feature to our zoo this year - personal animal encounters! These reserved, 45-minute sessions are held after our season ends, when the park is closed to the general public. Our staff will guide you and up to five guests in a hands-on visit with many of our most-loved residents, including sloths, capybaras and baby kangaroos! You can also feed the kookaburras and interact with other animals in our main building, including our tortoises and reptiles.

The details:

  • Personal encounters are 45 minute sessions where you will be able to get up close and interact with the animals

  • You must arrive 10 minutes before your event time to sign a waiver and receive instructions; there will be no time accommodations made for late arrivals.

  • You will be able to shop the gift shop for 15 minutes after the encounter

  • You are welcome to take pictures and videos of your encounter to share

  • Fee is non-refundable

  • Cost is $250 for 1-4 people, and $75 for each additional person with a max limit of 6 people per time slot

  • Payment must be received within 48 hours of receiving invoice to secure your reservation

  • Minimum age limit for children will be 7 years old

  • Time slots are available on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 10:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm and 2pm 


The number of personal encounters being offered is limited, so make your reservation early to treat your family to this unique and memorable event!
