Superhero Day Meet-n-Greet Details

Please note, our meet-and-greets will be different this year. Instead of individual photo opportunities with each character, your family will have the chance to meet and take photos with up to three characters in each specified meet-and-greet location.

Superhero Day meet-and-greet is included in regular admission. Along with meeting superheroes, guests can also see the Zoo’s BRICKLIVE Animal Paradise, meerkats, and the new inclusively designed entry.

For the safety of our performers and our guests, these super interactions will be from a safe distance of 6 feet apart.

There will be ground markers in front of each character’s location to allow your family to capture the perfect, socially distanced, photo! Please stay on the guest side of the stanchion barriers between the characters and the guests.

Masks will not be required for photos, but we do ask that you keep your mask while in the line queue and remain a safe social distance away from the party in front of you.

Also, per the State of Michigan, for all indoor public spaces at the Zoo, anyone who is age five (5) years and older, and who can medically tolerate a mask must wear one. In addition, if you cannot maintain six feet distance from other guests, are age five (5) years and older, and can medically tolerate a mask, you must wear one outdoors. We ask that you please bring a mask with you to the Zoo. This will help you be prepared should you find yourself in a situation where your group is unable to socially distance.
