The zoo after dark is a lively place. Spend the night at the zoo with your group and join the tigers and bats in their nocturnal scene.
ZooSnooze is available from October to early-June, Tuesdays through Saturdays (except holidays). Bring a group of kids or round up your adult friends for an unusual mini-vacation.
ZooSnooze features after-hours tours of the zoo’s exhibits, animal kitchen and Veterinary Medical Center, as well as zookeeper training games, inquiry sessions and hands-on animal activities.
Programs run from 5 p.m. to 9:30 a.m. the next day and includes zoo admission, dinner, breakfast and an evening snack. See the agenda here.
Bring a sleeping bag, pillow, change of clothes, toiletries and daypack. (Note: no shower facilities.)
