Zoo Snoozes

A Night at the Zoo

Your group can join us for a special overnight experience at the Zoo!

See below for more details and to learn about how to enter the lottery for 2024 Snooze dates.

Zoo Snoozes will take place Friday nights from January through mid-June, and September through mid-November. There are no Zoo Snoozes during Summer Camps or Zoolights.

An Unforgettable Experience

Slumber with Sea Creatures

During this exclusive Zoo Snooze experience your group will explore the Pacific Seas Aquarium galleries, take an outdoor nighttime tour of our Rocky Shores habitat and sleep in the underwater world of the Northwest Waters gallery (on the dry side of course!).

Registration Process

(You need to read this)

Due to the popularity of Zoo Snoozes, each group must submit an online request form.

  • Online request forms will be available here for submission August 1-31, 2023.
  • Submitting a request form does not guarantee that your group will be selected to participate in a Snooze program. Groups will be selected using a lottery system.
  • We will begin contacting groups about their 2024 status in early October 2023.
  • Only one submission per group is required. (Multiple submissions for the same group will not improve chances of selection.)
  • Request forms must be submitted annually. They do not roll over into future years.
