Each happy hour will feature a different animal theme and August 8 will focus on elephants and tonight’s event will surely involve an elephant pool party and other animal encounters.

VIP ticket option: The Elephant Bath Experience ($300, 5 p.m.): VIPs will participate in the elephants’ bathtime! Part of providing great welfare to our elephant family is strengthening our relationships with them so that we can take care of them when they need us most. Guests will get up close to an elephant and be part of that bonding time by helping our dedicated keeper staff scrub or hose an elephant while learning what it takes to provide great care for these amazing animals.
