To make reservations
Please call Group Sales at 419.385.5721 ext. 6001.
The Zoo has a limited number of high chairs; you must request one at the time of your reservation in order to ensure one is available.
We highly recommend reservations, as each seating time will hold just 200 people. We will accept walk-ins the day of the BBQ; however, they will be seated only after reservations are fulfilled, in the order as they arrive.
