IMPORTANT INFO

General Terms Rides & Interactives may need 15 minutes down time/3 hours for maintenance. Client will arrange/pay for parking for all vehicles. Client pays for any permits required for their location (permits can run from hundreds of dollars to well over a thousand). If the event is at a park or public location, Client must list all entertainment on permits required for this location, and must pay for entertainment contracted, even if location disallows the performance. For fundraisers, we do our best to maximize profits, but we are not responsible for any profit or loss. If volunteer attendants are required for an attraction, and at any time client does not provide them, either we will shut down the attraction, or client is responsible for paying for any attendant(s) that we provide instead. Rate is $195 for up to 5 hours. Commercial photos or recordings require prior permission. Deliveries Trucks towing a trailer need 10′ drive-able access with no sharp turns, and 14′ high clearance. If you have less room then that, call to see if truck and/or attraction will fit. Equipment can’t be delivered across sand without additional crew & fees. Trucks can’t drive on loose dirt or damp grass. Please turn off sprinklers for a minimum of 48 hrs before arrival & 5 hrs after the event ends. Set up area must be flat. We need up to a 3 hour window for set up & take down of most equipment, and 5 hours or more for major rides, or else extra delivery people may have to be added to the order. Animal Programs The availability of individual animals is subject to change. We reserve the right to substitute another animal in the event that one is unwell. The well-being of both the animals and your guests is always our primary concern. Rush Jobs There is a $100 Rush Fee for any job booked after 12noon on the business day before, or for any contract not signed and returned by 3pm the business day before. Same day bookings are subject to a $150 Late Booking Fee. Any legal documents which you require Zebra Entertainment and Events to sign with less than 2 business days’ notice incur a $50 fee, and insurance certificate requests with less than 2 business days’ notice are subject to a $25 rush fee. Cancellation Policy By booking through eventors, there is a standard 90-Day cancellation policy If something comes up and you have to postpone the party, we’ll always work with you to change everything to the new date. As long as you contact us in writing at least 2 weeks in advance, and reschedule within 6 months (based on availability of rides and/or performers), your deposit will be applied to the new date. If you have less than 2 weeks’ notice, please contact us immediately and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request. Rain & Weather Policy Although Southern California does not have many rainy days, it is always a possibility, especially November through April. Other than the few exceptions below, you need to have an alternate location in mind if the weather becomes a problem, or to alert us before booking so we can accommodate any planned “rain date.” Once we get to the day of your event, it’s too late to cancel or postpone, and the full amount is due. Most of our Entertainment can go indoors, including our Exotic Animal Programs, and even our Petting Zoos (on a tarp). Ponies can give rides in a light rain, as long as the surface they are walking on is not slippery. Petting Zoos can go on a patio, in a garage, or under a pop-up tent. (Remember: although animals are used to the cold and rain, your guests might be more comfortable with coats or umbrellas.) For Animals, extreme heat (over 100 degrees) can occasionally be a problem, particularly in July, August, September, and even October. Our animals cannot be outdoors in extreme heat, and need shade in warmer seasons, just like your guests. Rain Exceptions: some of our smaller Kiddie Rides and our Pony Rides and Petting Zoos can be postponed up until 12noon of the business day before your event without penalty, as long as you contact us at least a couple days in advance to determine if this applies to what you are booking. Important: If you are concerned that potential weather problems may cause you to change locations or post-pone your event, please call our office several days or weeks in advance a Insurance Terms We maintain general liability insurance with $1 million per occurrence and a minimum of $2 million aggregate, with a higher aggregate available for additional cost. Additionally Insured Certificates and Endorsements are available for the date of the event or for the duration of the policy. Cost is $50 for a certificate of insurance, and $125 each if you also require primary verbiage, or a waiver of subrogation. Please allow at least 1 week to process your request. Requests with less than 2 business days’ notice are subject to a $25 rush fee.

    I had such an incredible experience with this vendor. The kids were so excited to be able to experience an Alpaca up close. The handler was an absolute gem. So professional and kind. They are licensed and know what they're doing well. They treat their animals as family, with so much love and respect. That made me happy. Will book again. 10/10

    The cutest animals ever! we had the young zebra, baby lama, donkey, and baby pig.The kids loved it, and the adults. The staff got here on time and was very friendly and gave us a lot of time to take pictures. we had some issues with loading because we were on a one-way street so make sure you have enough space for their trailer to park​.
