Zoolights was truly amazing! So much to see and enjoy. While only seeing a few animals which we expected every aspect was superb! We enjoyed the music and there was ample food to enjoy. Come early as it gets very busy as the night continues.

I’m visiting from Michigan and went to the Zoo Lights with my family. This was a very enjoyable evening. The lights were fantastic! I would definitely go again. Well worth it

If you love Christmas lights and spirit. It's a must see regardless if you're a child or an adult.

Great experience for the family! Definitely worth the money!
