The Backstage Pass is an exclusive experience where participants can get a brand new view of the Binghamton Zoo! Join our Animal Curator for an in-depth and behind the scenes tour of the zoo. Our Backstage Pass program takes place on the second Saturday of every month during our open season, and registration is required as long as space is available.

A $30 per person fee (in addition to zoo admission) is required for our Backstage Pass program. Every participant must be at least 16 years of age or older. The program starts at 10:00 am by our ticket booth. To register, please call the Binghamton Zoo Education Department at (607) 724-5461 ext. 235. Tour slots are limited to just ten people.

*Backstage Pass fees are due when booking. Zoo admission is a seperate payment on the day of your tour. You will receive your “backstage pass” and meeting location when you are admitted to the zoo.

*Boots or sneakers are required.
