On Beyond Zebra – John Ball Zoo is More Than Animals

John Ball Zoo is a gem in our own backyard. If you haven’t visited this Grand Rapids landmark in awhile, you’re missing out on A LOT! It’s not just a place to see and learn about animals – it’s an exciting destination for hours of family fun.

My family buys a membership every year, and with so much to see and do, we never tire of the zoo! My 2-year old can’t get enough of climbing the interactive structures by the farm, while my 5-year old makes a point every time to say hi to her “little buddy,” the white faced saki monkey named Helen.

We also love the chimpanzees and the tigers, and we never skip a visit to the penguin house. The zoo is one of our favorite places to be, and GRKIDS wants to be sure it’s one of yours too!

Two families will get the VIP Treatment at John Ball Zoo

With hundreds of animals, up-close creature encounters, and adventurous experiences, JBZ is the place to be this summer. And we want to help you get there!

GRKIDS is teaming up with John Ball Zoo to give two lucky families a VIP Experience. Winners will not only enjoy free admission for the family, but the full array of adventures the zoo has to offer.

Families chosen for this adventure will be paired with a GRKIDS or ZOO team member who will take photos/video of the experience and document their day- for use in future zoo promotions.

Please DO Feed the Animals!

Want to get really up close to the animals?

Not only will you spend the day exploring the public parts of the zoo, but your VIP family will also experience a behind the scenes encounter.

Maybe you will help feed the plucky penguins or maybe you’ll get to bring lunch to the perky pelicans. These encounters give you an up close and personal look at how zookeepers keep the animals safe, happy, and healthy.

Ride, Climb, or Zip Through the Zoo With an Experience Package

Next, as part of the VIP treatment, the lucky winners will check out some of the ancillary experiences the zoo offers.

This may include a ride on the funicular to the top of the zoo, a daring climb on the two-level Sky Trail Ropes Course, or a high-flying cruise on the 600-foot zipline that gives you a bird’s eye view of the zoo.

Or maybe your VIP experience will include a camel ride, a stop at Red’s Hobby Farm, or a visit to the Budgie Aviary where you’ll walk amongst (and maybe even feed!) these colorful birds.
