Most People Don’t Know You Can Stay Overnight At This Extraordinary Zoo In Tennessee
Most of us, if not all of us, have sweet experiences and memories stored up from our time at the zoo as children. It was a magical thing! To see lions and tigers and bears, to slurp up ice cream cones on our way to the petting zoo or shiver our way through a reptile show. It’s such an exciting experience, to find yourself smack dab in the middle of the animal kingdom. Here in Tennessee, though, it’s not just limited to the daytime..
The Nashville Zoo has long been renowned for its fantastic layout, gorgeous animal exhibits and kind employees. It's a family-friendly establishment that has only grown in popularity and charm in the last decade, attracting families from all over the city and state.
The zoo hosts hundreds of thousands of tourists every single year for its neat local experiences with some of the most renowned animals in the world. Whether you're looking to view a red panda, Caribbean flamingo or the famed Masai giraffes, the ever-expanding zoo makes for a great day trip.
The zoo may be known for its fantastic location and exhibits, but we're here to chat about the Zzzoofari Slumber. The event gained popularity a few years ago, when the zoo made public that it was going to host an exciting camping experience for kids from four to twelve years old.
Don't worry - these guys weren't invited!
The experience was known as the Zzzoofari Slumber, and escorted children along with their families had the chance to experience the zoo after-hours, taking part in activities that ranged from a zipline to hayride.
The animal show was the most popular event, and the marshmallow roast! A full dinner and breakfast were both served to all attendees, although folks were encouraged to bring necessities like a sleeping bag, toothbrush and flashlight.
The next Zzzoofari Slumber is planed for September 1st through September 2nd, 2018. Members will pay $38 a person to attend, non-members will shell out $55 a person and toddlers (ages 2-3) are $15 each. All registered kiddos also get a souvenir gift, too!
Would you dare to stay overnight in this magical place? Make sure to check the Nashville Zoo website for slumper party events, otherwise you can visit from 9am to 6pm at 3777 Nolensville Pike every day of the week.
