The kids really enjoyed it! I thought you did a great job of presenting some factual information about the animals without talking too long and losing their attention. I received lots of compliments from parents. You also made sure the birthday boy felt special. I got some great pics of him with the reptiles. Thanks for helping make my son's 5th birthday a huge success!

Important party information

1. We recommend that your birthday party starts at least 30 minutes before your Crocodile Encounter begins. This allows the "fashionably late" people to arrive and settle in. It is important that your Crocodile Encounter show starts on time. Typically Crocodile Encounter will intentionally arrive 15 minutes after you tell us to allow for late guests. This has proved an effective way to prevent people from missing part of the show. Of course if you want us there at a designated time that is perfectly fine as well. Do to intense demand for our show we arrange our weekend show schedule in two hour blocks based on the first show scheduled for that day. Any other day of the week we have more flexibility. We try to accommodate every birthday child as their day only occurs once a year and this schedule ensures we can travel anywhere in the Houston area and maintain schedule integrity.

2. The food should be served after the reptile birthday party, in order to ensure cleanliness. We ask that the kids are not snacking during the program. Children who are eating during the show will not be permitted to touch the animals.

3. It takes only a few minutes to set up for a Crocodile Encounter birthday party and we can perform in most indoor rooms, such as a living or dining room or outside if the weather is appropriate. The animals are generally not messy but like children accidents can happen although it is a rarity with our primary show animals. We ask that if you are having an outdoor party you have a shady area designated for the show animals.

4. Reptile Birthday party pricing is determined based on your location from Crocodile Encounters base facility in Angleton Texas. We have a base price that is competitive with other similar wildlife shows in the state of Texas despite the fact that our show is the largest in the state. For pricing please see the Croccatalog. To read more about how we determine our price structure read our FAQ.

5. We ask that you please be respectful of our schedule. It is highly likely that we will be performing other events on the day yours is scheduled and we structure our travel around your schedule. We want to ensure all of our clients are satisfied with our educational shows. As such please attempt to adhere to your chosen time as much as possible so we can extend the same courtesy to all our clients. If your party is starting at 4 have us arrive at 4:30. We only need a few minutes to set up and then we are into the show.

6. Onsite birthday parties are scheduled in two hour blocks. The first 1hr to 1:15 will be our croc show. We endeavor to leave 45 minutes for your personal party. You are more than welcome to bring the cake, food, etc. We have a courtyard designated for your party. No food or drink is allowed on the boardwalk at any time as we have to protect the animals from debris.

7. Book your event as early as possible.Typically our booking runs about one month in advance although we have planners who may schedule as far as six months in advance of their event and others who call the week(or on occasion day) before. Like anything else more advance notice gives you the option of securing your preferred date and not having to flex your event around what is already on our calender. We do an increasing number of shows annually and the schedule gets loaded pretty quickly. At the time of booking you will be asked for your CC number to secure your spot. Your CC is not charged unless that is the method of payment you prefer. The CC just holds your spot and acts as your deposit. In the event of a cancellation you will be charged a fee as we will bypass other bookings while you are on our calendar.

We look forward to making your child's special crocodile birthday party an incredible experience and one they will always remember!There birthday comes but once a year and we never forget that fact.

How to make your party great!- a tried and true method

When people call us they want to know about booking, the animals, how a typical events goes, etc but often they are also looking for a great memorable party with good structure for the children at the event. Crocodile Encounter offers the following suggestion that we have seen work many, many times. Prior to our arrival have the kids do a crocodile related craft. It is our suggestion that they create crocodile or reptile picture frames. We arrive and present our animal show. At the conclusion of the show we have the guests have their picture taken with a photo alligator. The guests go and do the cake/gift portion of the party at which time Dad or a family friend is printing the pictures of the guests with the animal. After eating the guests put the pictures in the frames they made previously and take them home as a memento. Total time approximately 2 hours. It's orderly, fun, and memorable. If you need great party items for your Crocodile Encounter birthday party we have uncovered this website. They seem to carry virtually everything you will need to make your party with us complete.
