ZooLights VIP
ZooLights VIP
Experience ZooLights like the VIP you know you are!

Your experience starts when you pull in to the exclusive valet parking area before you even get to the main parking lot at the zoo. Premiere Valet will park your vehicle in a gated parking lot, while you and your party enter ZooLights through your own private entrance at the Education Center.

There, you'll be treated to snacks, an animal meet and greet, a souvenir ZooLights cup, and a drink ticket to use at the private cash bar.

We'll have the fire pit going so you can toast marshmallows before heading out, all with an exclusive view overlooking ZooLights. When you're ready to explore the rest of the zoo, we'll give you an expedited train line entrance so you can waltz to the front of the line.

When you've had your fill of the best possible ZooLights experience, the valet service will bring your vehicle back to you.

The ZooLights VIP Experience is available from 5-8 p.m. on the following nights:

  • Friday, December 14
  • Saturday, December 15
  • Sunday, December 16
  • Friday, December 21
  • Saturday, December 22
  • Sunday, December 23

    VIP tickets cost $159.95 for one car and two people; each additional guest is $59.95. Kids 0-2 get in free.

    VIP tickets include valet parking, expedited entrance, gourmet snacks, cash bar, souvenir cup, one drink ticket (for beer/wine or cocoa/coffee), animal meet and greet, s'mores at the fire pit (weather permitting), exclusive ZooLights photo opportunities, and an expedited train ride.

    You will receive an email with all the information about locations and times closer to your event date.

    Proceeds from these events support the zoo's mission of conservation education and animal welfare.
