Open Plays

Don't stay cooped up at home when you can get a little WILD with our cool creatures (CROCS, SNAKES, & LIZARDS, OH MY! –and many more). Come discover our new Open Play times which are recommended for preschoolers or early elementary age children. Play times are unstructured (without the formal presentation that we offer at a Jungle Express) and include: arts&crafts, discovery tables, dress up center, puppet theater, fossil dig, puzzles, books, toys, hula hoops, scooters and more! Our amazing animals are ALWAYS on display and there will be a LIVE animal interaction (a staff member will bring an animal around for children to meet and touch). Small moon bounce is available for groups of 5 or more.
