Cool Nights: ZOO-vie Night

July 11, 2014 - 5:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Arrive to the Zoo before 8:30 p.m. to have plenty of time to visit the animals and dance along with Tom’s Fun Band before the sun sets. Guests can also enjoy special Meet the Keeper Talks with the macaws and the anaconda at 7 p.m., as well as giraffe feedings at 6 p.m.
 
Then put your blanket down and settle in to watch the ’80s family-adventure classic Goonies at 9 p.m. It’s movie-watching like never before – on a giant screen surrounded by thousands of animals!
 
Admission gates are open until 8:30 p.m. on this night only. More Info About Cool Nights
