Animal Encounter Stage

Animal Encounter Stage

Come experience animals closer than ever before at the Animal Encounter Stage presented by Union Bank & Trust! 

The Animal Encounter Stage, one of the top animal encounters in the nation, gives guests a one-of-a-kind opportunity to meet their favorite animals up close and talk with real zookeepers. Four or more shows run daily with over 20 animals rotating through the schedule. Featured animals include Apollo the bobcat, Renzo the Porcupine, Fez the Armadillo, Scout the Owl, Bolt & Jet the Fennec Foxes, ZanDaam the boa constrictor, Betty the Galapagos tortoise, Liv the wallaby, Calvin the baby alligator and more! The Animal Encounter Stage can seat 75 to 100 guests at one time. In 2014, the opening year for the stage, over 20,000 guests got to see animals up close!

Lincoln Children's Zoo is a seasonal zoo and is open April - October. Weekly show schedules will be posted on this page once the Zoo opens in April 2015.
