ZooLights Sensory Inclusive Night

January 6, 2020 - 04:00pm

ZooLights Sensory Inclusive Night provides an experience for guests with different sensory processing needs and their families.

What is ZooLights Sensory Night?

In order to provide a sensory-friendly experience, lighting and sounds are muted and cool down spaces are provided. Sensory Inclusive Night has limited participation in order to minimize crowds. Tickets are available for 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. to 8 p. m. The zoo train will begin operating at 6 p.m.

Tickets to sensory night are only available in advance and can be purchased online here.

Can members come to Sensory Inclusive Night?

Yes! The Sensory Inclusive Night event is not available as a free benefit to zoo members due to small event capacity. However, we have made a limited number of discounted tickets available for members. To access these discounted tickets, members can log into their account and purchase tickets in advance online. Please note that a current membership card and photo ID will be required for entry in order to use the discounted member tickets. No discounts will be available at the gate.
