I truly cannot say enough about the incredibly great service we experienced when using the Central Florida Zoo and their Ovations Catering Serve for my daughter's Baby Shower. From the very beginning Katherine gave us the information we needed and with my daughter using a safari theme for the nursery - the zoo was perfect! A hidden gem!

We were able to setup the day before and the Zoo Caterer, Orlando Irizarry of Ovations was beyond helpful. He clearly was incredible. You have heard the phrase "Went over and beyond the call of duty!" that was Orlando. Carried our decorations in, provided a flat bed to use, and even checked on us and brought us cold water to drink.

We invited mothers to bring their children and it was great fun. We had a "Fuzzy Greet and Meet" where they brought three precious little animals that the children could learn about and pet. Our only regret was that it rained and we could not take the carousel or train ride. However, in spite of the rain, the Wayne Densch Center was a great entrance into the banquet room. Full of all manner of insects displayed and beautiful butterflies. The children guests had a great time.

We used the Zoo's caterer and were not disappointed. Orlando worked with us on customizing our requests. The food was well done, tasted good, and the buffet display was very nicely setup. The staff were attentive and helped clean up - again "Went over and beyond the call of duty!" Wonderful people!!!

Will use again. I can see a birthday party in the making.

Every time I turned around, I was more and more impressed by what the Zoo had offered us. They were professional and gracious hosts. Would definitely book there again!

Everyone was extremely helpful and did a great job catering to our guests. It was way better than the "usual" company picnic!

what a unique and beautiful venue to have your wedding and events! If you have not considered a zoo, check it out, the place is amazing!

Excellent Venue

Beautiful Venue and great prices with amazing packages available. The staff at the Central Florida Zoo is very professional and pleasant to work with. Our clients enjoyed having their event in the Safari Room, 3400 sq. ft room with an attached porch and courtyard leading to a beautiful botanical garden. It's simply beautiful.
