Have you ever wondered what happens at the Zoo after it closes? Venture into the unknown with us during an overnight Zoo Snooze and share the night life with our animals. We offer Scout, birthday and organization snoozes. Activities include a live animal presentation, a nature hike at night through the zoo, behind-the-scenes tours, wildlife games, and more. A light breakfast is provided in the morning.
