DEJA ZOO – ESCAPE ROOM EXPERIENCE

Tired of virtual get-togethers? Escape the Zoom! Get your team of up to 10 players and head over to the Buttonwood Park Zoo to see if you have what it takes to solve puzzles, decode clues, conquer challenges, and work together in order to stop your timer and earn a place in our Hall of Fame! Escape experiences take place after the zoo has closed, include access to buildings currently closed to the public, and conclude with an Animal Ambassador encounter.

Each experience lasts 90 minutes and costs $300.

PRIVATE AFTER-HOURS ZOO TOUR

Ever wondered what it would be like to have the whole zoo to yourself? Well now’s your chance! For a limited time, we’re offering private after-hours zoo tours for you and up to 9 guests, complete with exclusive access to our Rainforests, Rivers, & Reefs building, up-close and personal animal encounters, and so much more!

Each tour lasts 2 hours and costs $350.

For more information and to schedule your after-hours experience, email Carrie Hawthorne at carrie.hawthorne@newbedford-ma.gov or call (508) 991-6178 ext. 67413.
