Animal Encounters ~

Choose from a selection of fun and educational, interactive experiences that allow you to get up close and personal with some of the Oglebay Good Zoo animal residents. Help our Zoo Keepers feed and train the zoo’s animals as they welcome you into their exhibit. Be sure to bring your camera for this incredible experience. Closed toe shoes must be worn. Participants must meet age requirements and must complete the animal encounter liability release. Please arrive to the zoo office 15 minutes prior to scheduled encounter.

When booking your encounter online select a category, and a list of animals and times will appear. Make your selection. If the date is blocked on the calendar, try another time, as we can only book one encounter per hour.
