Zoo Snoozes

Bring your sleeping bags and we’ll take care of the rest: behind-the-scenes encounters with Zoo animals, nighttime activities, and even breakfast. It’s an adventure your family will never forget!

Zoo Boo Snooze!

6 p.m. Friday, Oct. 17 – 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 18.
Calling all ghouls and goblins! Join the Virginia Zoo for our Family Boo Snooze. Explore the Zoo at night and learn firsthand about the creepy and not so creepy animals that come out at night, and even meet a few up close!

Snooze includes fun games and activities, a night time hike around the zoo, a visit from some of our animal ambassadors, a light continental breakfast in the morning and more!  Participants must be at least 6 years old to snooze at the zoo.

Online reservations required, click here to register. $35 per person. 

Notes: Snooze activities are geared for children 6 and up, and a parent or guardian must also attend. We can only take a limited number of people and when a snooze is announced, we take reservations on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, e-mail or call (757) 441-2374, ext. 229.
