Egg hunts will take place in assigned waves organized by age group. If you have multiple children in different age groups and would like for them to participate together, please select the age group of the older child for all children. Children may participate in the age group above their actual age, but not below. Please select your desired egg hunt time during checkout. All ticket purchases are final and no changes are permitted after purchase. If you miss your egg hunt time, we are unable to move you to another wave.

We do not recommend the egg hunt for children under 12 months of age.

Space in each wave is limited and tickets are first come, first served. Note: All ticket purchases are final and no changes are permitted after purchase.

Lincoln Park Zoo will provide approximately 15 eggs for each child. Please be respectful of other participants when hunting.

Guests are required to bring their own baskets or bags for egg hunting. Bags or baskets will not be provided.
