Wild Winks - Spend the Night at the Zoo

Stay overnight at the Houston Zoo and have a fun-filled and totally unique after-hours adventure! Grab your flashlight and walk with us through the dark pathways to spy nocturnal zoo denizens and other zoo animals out for an evening prowl in their habitats. Enjoy a pizza dinner and curl up in your sleeping bag in the climate-controlled comfort of our education center. Then wake for a continental breakfast, morning zoo tour and a touchable animal experience!

Wild Winks overnights are available for individuals, families, scouts, school and community groups – check the Wild Winks page for more information.
