Where wildlife meets wild lights! ZooLights returns to Hogle Zoo this holiday season with more sparkling lights, over 250 animated light displays, and more nightly fun than ever before! View glittering animated animals made out of lights, warm up under heaters and enjoy a hot chocolate and deep-fried s’more along the way. Take a ride on the Conservation Carousel (weather permitting) and then stop in to see Santa in EdZoocation Station! Stop into the Wild Zootique to finish your holiday shopping and pick up some hologram glasses to see the lights as never before.
Join the Reindeer Parade!
Join the reindeer parade each evening at 5:15 in the Entry Plaza as two of Santa’s tiny reindeer make their way to Santa’s Station – then visit with the Jolly Old Elf himself! Santa’s Reindeer will leave ZooLights! with Santa on Christmas Eve.
Family Friendly Early New Year’s Countdown
Get the kids in bed on time while still letting them ring in the new year, with our early countdown at 9 pm at ZooLights! Kids can do a New Year craft, get a noisemaker, and count down with our lighted countdown display. Come early to see all the lights and enjoy the last night of ZooLights.
