If you are looking for children's entertainment with a difference, our children's animal parties' package is the perfect solution.
For the kids, it's an opportunity to get up close and personal with a range of both exotic and familiar creatures, with our approved members of staff on hand to ensure that they are able to handle the animals entirely safely. For the adults, it provides a stress-free entertainment option which ensures that you aren't too busy to actively enjoy your child's special occasion with them.
Do you want a dynamic, new
and exciting approach to engaging your children with the living world?
Using a wide array of
reptiles from snakes to frogs to tarantulas, we tailor our sessions to suite
your age group and current subject matter. Be it living things and their
habitats, evolution and inheritance or a general understanding of the living
Suitable for nursery
upwards, sessions are as little as £100 per class and last approximately 1 and
a half hours giving exceptional value for such a unique teaching aid. We can
either come to your site or you are welcome to come to the Into the wild
premises which have been specifically designed and built to be a multi sensory
experience and a visually stimulating space for children of all ages.

Fantastic place and people, my little girl had her 8th birthday party here today with friends and in her words "best party ever!" I was really impressed with the knowledge of the staff and felt like the kids got such a lot out of it. The staff were brilliant with those (adults included) who were nervous of handling the creatures and everyone had a great time.
I'm sure we'll be back in the holidays for one of the handling sessions as my daughter absolutely loved it!
I'll add some photos when I get chance. �
Thank you, you made my daughter's day.

"Our students had such a great time meeting the animals Kayleigh brought in with her. Norman was a huge hit exploring the hall and the pupils enjoyed watching him much his treats! Kayleigh was really great adapting her sessions to meet the complex needs of our school, and the animals brought huge smiles to all the pupils and staff that attended the session. High Park School"

We had my son's 7th birthday party here last Saturday. He loves animals/reptiles so seemed the perfect choice although I was a bit unsure what to expect. It was amazing. The whole party, from walking through the door to leaving was so well organised. Kayleigh (sorry if that's spelt incorrectly) and the girl helping (sorry didn't catch your name) were both so good with the kids. The children listened in awe to the animal facts delivered to them as they took it in turns to hold and stroke the animals. Children that were more fearful were under no pressure whatsoever to touch anything they didn't want to. My son was able to choose beforehand which animals he would like to see. The snake they brought out was enormous and for children to be able to hold and touch something that size was awesome. It was obvious all the animals are very well looked after and loved!! After handling all the animals hands were well washed and the girls had laid on a lovely birthday lunch for the party complete with mountains of sandwiches, crisps, biscuits etc. They also provide party bags on request, although we organised our own. Afterwards all the adults who had attended spoke to me about what a fantastic venue/party it had been and how professional and knowledgable the girls were. Thank you so much Into The Wild. My son had the most AMAZING party (that him and his friends are all still talking about) and I would recommend you to anyone in a heartbeat! Vicky x

My friends and I had been meaning to check this place out for a while as we all love exotic animals, and even though the youngest person in our party was 25 we still enjoyed it as much as the kids did. The highlight for us was the extremely sociable monitor lizard named Olive, who fell asleep on my friend's lap and ended up staying there the whole session. Was great fun and would totally do it again

We had my son's 6th birthday party here on Saturday and it was fantastic! The children and adults all loved the animals and enjoyed learning about them and holding them. Kayleigh and Emily were both brilliant and so good with the children, very knowledgeable and good fun. Would definitely recommend as a party venue! Thank you so much!

Took my 3 boys to their first (defo not last) handling session yesterday and they loved it. They got totally involved, even my one year old who I didn't think would. They loved it that much that I have now booked my son's birthday party with them. Staff were lovely and made it an experience worth repeating designed around children and adults. Would certainly recommend !

Had our daughters 7th Birthday party here yesterday! all the children had an amazing time. Kayleigh and Emily were very knowledgeable and patient with the children. The length of time the children had to interact with the reptiles was fantastic, also giving them chance to ask questions about them. Would definitely reccomend and will be booking again! Thankyou!!

My 6 year old had his birthday party at Into the Wild today and he's had such a lovely time, as did his friends. Emily & Emily were friendly, brilliant with the children and the animals, had great knowledge and clearly enjoyed their jobs. Lots of the children brave enough to hold Titanium with their encouragement. A lovely party and so nice to do something different! Thanks so much. I suspect we will be back!
