Cancellation must be made 1 week prior to the program. Rescheduling depends on availability of dates. Sorry, no refunds, but a rain check may be issued. Remember, payment is due 2 weeks prior to your scheduled program.
The Kansas City Zoo reserves the right to cancel a program due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather conditions and/or animal or personnel issues. In the event of a cancellation we will make every effort to schedule an alternate date and time to visit your facility as soon as possible. However, we cannot guarantee availability of make-up dates.
