Backstage Experience Encounter

Nov 3, 2018 - Dec 31, 2018


Are you looking for a more exclusive and in-depth look at Denver Zoo? If so, Backstage Experience is for you!

Begin your private tour behind-the-scenes with our animal ambassadors. Animal ambassadors welcome attendees to special events, visit schools and even make media appearances, but zoo guests don’t usually get to visit their home. This backstage area has over 90 animal residents, so you might get to touch a turtle, be tickled by a tamandua’s tongue or meet even tropical bird. This exclusive tour includes a variety of up-close encounters, followed by an animal feeding or training demonstration. Then, it’s off to meet the stars of the Wildlife Show, where you’ll go behind the scenes to see how we care for these charismatic animals. Prepare to be dazzled by colorful parrots, majestic birds of prey, and mammals both prickly and fuzzy.

When your experience wraps up, you are free to enjoy the zoo at your leisure.
