Zoolights Top 10
Lights. Cameras. Magic.
1. Be wowed
by stunning light displays.
Be inspired by a giant octopus, sea turtles and sharks, a 22-foot-wide rock crab with moving pincers and a glowing orange body, and more. Surprises await you at every turn!
Experience a magical world of over 700,000 lights, including a 100-foot Giant Pacific octopus lounging on the roof, a massive roaring tiger head, two Narrows Bridges and the cactus garden.
4. Meet the meerkats
at Kids' Zone.
Marvel at our mob of meerkats and meet other animals up-close at Kids' Zone. Zoo animals in other exhibit areas will be asleep off exhibit.
5. Ride a camel
Visitors as young as 3 can have an up-close experience with these amazing animals. A camel ride surrounded by twinkling lights makes a night at Zoolights twice as magical. (Weather-dependent.)Camel Rides
7. Gaze into the depths
of the Blue Hole.
Be mesmerized by a swirl of tropical fish in our South Pacific Aquarium's Blue Hole. It's a divers-eye-view into a vibrant, underwater world.
8. Feed a goat
Bring your kids to meet ours.
Get up close to adorable goats at Kids' Zone. Feel their noses wiggle in your hand as you feed them Timothy hay food pellets.
