All about Zoolights
Is Zoolights a walk-through or drive-through display?
It’s a walk-through. Parking is free.
Who is covered for member-discounted Zoolights tickets?
Whoever is covered on your membership, including dependents/grandchildren on Household/Grandparent/Deluxe levels, and 3 guests on the Deluxe levels, 4 on Sponsor and 5 on Patron levels. More membership information here.
I have a Deluxe level membership that allows three guests each time I visit. Will I be able to get discounted Zoolights tickets for them as well?
Yes. See above.
Are wheel chair/scooter/stroller rentals available and where do I find them?
On busier nights (e.g. weekends), rentals will be located behind the front gate side booth. On slower nights they are located inside the carousel building.
If we purchase a combo ticket can we stay on grounds or do we have to leave and come back?
You are welcome to do either. If you choose to stay on grounds, our main café, carousel and gift shop all will remain open during that hour in between the zoo closing and Zoolights opening.
We are members of a reciprocal zoo. Can we get free Zoolights tickets?
No. Zoolights is not part of the reciprocal agreement as it is a special event. (See all zoos on the reciprocity list here.)
Can we dine at the Zoo?
Yes! Our Plaza Cafe is always open for dinner, drinks and snacks. The Pearl St Grille, near Camels, is open peak times only. Other stands for snacks and drinks are open around the Zoo.
Are camel rides always open?
Our camel rides are weather-dependent. Check at the front gate during inclement weather.
