Zoo Lights

Embrace winter and see the Zoo in a whole new light at Zoo Lights! Zoo Lights is an outdoor, walk-through experience. Each evening, the focus of the Zoo experience will shift from viewing animals to viewing stunning light displays. 

We have made modifications to the Zoo Lights experience to ensure we are in compliance with public health orders and that all in attendance can follow public health guidelines and advice.

Zoo Lights Experience

We have made modifications to the Zoo Lights experience to ensure we are in compliance with public health orders. Guests will still have the opportunity to see stunning light displays, enjoy bonfires, and become immersed in the magic of winter. This year, we have expanded the site and added more lights! Live entertainment and programming has been eliminated. Wild Things Unique Gifts will be open. Dress for the weather!
