We have two options that you will love.

Wild Night

Want to experience the zoo at night? Come see the zoo as you never have before. Spend two hours on a guided exploration of what happens after some of our animals go to bed and others wake up. You may even be able to get a sneak peak behind the scenes of an exhibit.

$20 per person

7:00pm to 9:00pm

For groups of 8 or more. 7 years & older.

1 adult per 10 children required

Slumber Safari

Have you ever wondered what goes on outside after you are tucked into bed? Explore the zoo at night and discover why some animals prefer staying awake. Meet one of our keepers for a behind the scenes tour! Then spend the night at the zoo and wake up the next morning to a continental breakfast and a guided walk around as the keepers “wake up” the zoo.

$40 per person

7:00pm to 9:00am

For groups of 15 or more. 7 years & older.
