You can’t spell SNOOZE without the ZOO!
Through our Zoo Snoozin’ program, groups of children and their chaperones get to see another side of the Zoo, plus share adventures with animals, educators, animal keepers, friends and classmates. Snoozers are immersed in the environment of the Zoo at night—and have the treat of seeing what the Zoo is like after dark.
Here are a few of the exciting activities you can enjoy at a Zoo Snooze:
A guided zoo tour, without the crowds
Meet touchable animals up close and personal
Learn about how we take care of animals at the Zoo
Fun games and activities
Make enrichment for some of our Zoo residents
“Hit the straw” in a special sleeping space
Pizza dinner and a continental breakfast
A snooze lasts from 6:30 pm until 10 am the next day, but the fun doesn’t end at 10! Please feel free to stay and visit the next day. Next day admission to the Zoo is included in the program fee.
