    Henna Tattoo
    We use a paste to draw designs on your skin. It takes about 30-45 minutes to dry and then the paste will fall off. The stain underneath will be light orange at the beginning, but by the next day it will turn a darker brown. The tattoo will last for up to 2 weeks depending on the spot applied and the aftercare.
    Face Painting
    Skilled artists will help your guests select from one of our many lively designs and then hand-paint the colorful image in just a matter of minutes.
  • Penguin or Reptile Encounters - You must reserve the birthday room in order to book a penguin or reptile encounter. The special encounter usually lasts 45 minutes and is an additional $200 fee. Please use the "Book Your Party" link at the top of the page to book your party and an animal encounter.
