Double Stroller - $12 + tax per day

Motorized Scooters - $35 all-day rental

A limited number of complimentary wheelchairs are available.

All other rental items are located just inside the Zoo's front grate at Safari Supplies. Quantity is limited and can not be reserved. A valid ID is required for rental. Credit cards are accepted. Children are not permitted to ride ECVs with adults.

Sensory Bags

A limited number of sensory bags are available to Zoo guests. Each bag contains items that might assist in making the Zoo a friendlier experience for guests with sensory sensitivities. Sensory bags contain a weighted animal the guest can hold, noise-canceling headphones, fidget tools and other resources.

The bags are available for checkout from the Guest Relations office at the front of the Zoo. There is no rental fee; we ask that all items be placed back in the bag and returned at the end of the visit. The bags are available on a first-come, first-served basis so they cannot be reserved.

Your service animal is permitted throughout the park with the exception of the following:

  • Toyota Children’s Ranch and Petting Corral

  • Flamingos of the Americas 
  • Flamingos of Africa (coming soon)
Dining

Guests with allergy and dietary restrictions are encouraged to bring their own picnic lunch.  Small coolers with outside food and drinks are permitted. There are also a variety of dining options here at the Zoo! Learn more about them there. If you do bring in your own food and drink, we ask that you do not bring in glass, alcohol or single-use straws and lids.
