WIN! A Variety of Passes for a Day of Adventure at John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids

Most of the time we go to the zoo just to see the animals, but did you know that John Ball Zoo has so many other ways for you to experience fun and nature? While most of the experiences have additional costs attached to zoo admission, they definitely add more excitement to any zoo trip. And what better time to check them out as they are all open during the summer months (weather permitting)!

Read on to see how you can win this Adventure Pack from John Ball Zoo!


Adventure Awaits

One-way funicular passes offer an easy ride to the highest peak of the zoo, so you can skip the inclining walk and do all your exploring as you walk downhill instead. Or you can choose to hike up and see the animals, then use the passes for a relaxing ride back down to the zoo entrance.

The zipline and ropes course bring thrilling excitement if you’re daring enough to see the zoo from four stories high! Fly across the 600-foot line or challenge your physicality and balance by navigating through the obstacles. And remember to wear closed toed shoes to participate in these bold feats!

Calling All Bird Lovers

Watch fascinating birds, like the Bald Eagle, soar in the Realm of Flight Bird Show! This show, brought to the John Ball Zoo by the World Bird Sanctuary, features 10 birds that exhibit their skills and tricks. Visitors can catch it in the zoo’s amphitheater at three different times throughout the day. It’s an exciting treat for people of all ages to see!

Don’t just get excited about the big birds! Take full advantage of seeing the small, colorful birds, too, as you take a stroll through the budgie aviary. Get up close and personal with some Australian budgerigars for an amusing feeding experience!
