Flamingo Encounter

Join the flock

Meet our resident rock stars, the flamingo flock. Slip on your VIP pass and our host will guide you to the flamingo quarters. You’ll get a chance to mingle backstage with a big name flamingo like Slash, Hendrix, Cash, or Lita. Learn more from animal care experts about what it takes to care for these unique birds and you’ll get a photo snapped with the pink, feathered star. But please no autographs. It’s hard to hold a pen with that beak!
