The Discovery Pass Experience takes place during the summer season. This experience will ensure you ‘get closer'. The animals that may be available are the behind-the-scenes animals, such as the Hippopotamus, Grizzly Bear Cubs, Black Bears, Red Pandas, or Giraffe. *These experiences are subject to change*

With this new program, we hope to establish many new friends of the zoo, we are always open to feedback as to what we can offer. So, let us know how we can make this program even better by emailing

Discovery Pass holders will be emailed a minimum of 2 weeks in advance to book their time/day. Experiences will be approximately 5-10 minutes, times and days will be completely dependent on the animal’s behavior and comfortability. GVZoo will do its best to accommodate re-bookings in the case of a booked time being canceled due to GVZoo’s decision. This experience is an invitation for Discovery Pass holders to attend, Discovery Pass holders are not entitled to an experience and if the Pass holder misses their time or does not book, another experience will not be offered.
