Review from Kids Birthday and Bar/Bat Mitzvah Party Survey - 2016Age of child: 4 Venue Review: This was the perfect party for my son, who loves animals. Very hands-on, organized, and I like that you can pick among different animals/ activities for the kids. There were a number of older siblings at our party , too, in the 6-7 range, and these kids were plenty engaged and entertained, too.
(no subject)We had our son's 3rd birthday at the Prospect Park zoo. It was fantastic, and super easy for us. They do everything, expect provide the cake, drinks and plates. Otherwise, everything else was taken care of including the decorations. AND, the kids got to pet live animals. Everyone had a great time.
Review from Birthday Party Survey, 2012LIKES: Animals What you'd change: Nothing Do you recommend (High Rec, Rec, Rec w/ Reservations, Do Not Rec)? Highly Recommend
Review from Birthday Party Survey, 2012Name of Party: Sea Lion Party Address: LIKES: They have two party rooms there that can be opened up to one large room. We paid extra to have the larger room because we were just over the size limit for the smaller room, and so it was very spacious. The party was very tightly run by the zoo staff. We didn't have to do anything except hand out cake. What you'd change: The party was well run and the kids loved it, there were plenty of activities to fill the time, but it was a little on the "low-key" side. Do you recommend (High Rec, Rec, Rec w/ Reservations, Do Not Rec)? Recommend
(no subject)My son and I went to a third birthday party at Prospect Park Zoo, and it was terrific. They bring in a couple of animals that the kids get to pet and learn about, and they provide some art activities as well. It's in a sizable room, and you can bring in your own food. The party we went into was in the fall and so included a little excursion over to the petting zoo; not sure what they do in cold weather but even in winter a little outdoor jaunt is usually do-able. Guests can hang out at the zoo after the party; admission is included in the rental.
