Planning a night out and need to find a babysitter? Look no more! The Virginia Zoo will handle childcare for you. Kids aged 4-12 will enjoy a fun-filled and educational time at the Zoo. In this kids-only, after-hours adventure, we’ll bring the dark secrets of the animal kingdom to light.
Discover why fireflies gleam and how snakes use heat-seeking superpowers to track down their prey. Through learning activities, games, hikes, and animal visits, we will learn who’s roaring and who’s snoring when the sun goes down. Take a leap in the dark and explore with us!
