ZooLights opens its doors to Zoo For All families this season on 10 different nights
Enjoy the dazzling winter wonderland that is ZooLights, visit elephants, penguins and other animals, ride the popular lighted train and eat dinner at the zoo. Little ones may want to ride the carousel, and Santa will be available at the events through Dec. 23 for photos.
This year, the Oregon Zoo will offer Zoo For All pricing—$5 per person for qualifying families—on these dates: Nov. 26, Nov. 29, Dec. 3–6 and Dec. 10–13.
If these dates don't work for Zoo For All families, they may use their eligibility to enter the zoo before 4 p.m. on most other ZooLights days (ZooLights is closed on Nov. 22, 27 and 28, and Dec. 24 and 25). Guests who are in the zoo before 4 p.m. can stay on through ZooLights. The lights are all on by 5 p.m. and guests may stay on grounds until 9 p.m.
Zoo For All tickets must be purchased in person at the ticket office the night you're attending. Each qualifying member can bring up to six immediate family members as well. Find out if your family qualifies by visiting this page.
Zoo For All nights are Nov. 26, 29 and Dec. 3–6 and 10–13. Advance tickets are not available for Zoo For All guests.
The zoo opens each day at 9:30 a.m., and ZooLights tickets are valid after 4 p.m.
The hours are 5 to 8 p.m. on Zoo For All nights. Grounds remain open for one hour after gates close.
Zoo For All tickets are not available in advance.
