Spending The Night In This Texas Zoo Is An Adventure Of Wild Proportions
Some of the Houston Zoo’s wildest animals come alive after dark, and you can party with them. Filled with food, drinks, games, and furry friends, this unforgettable adventure is definitely bucket list-worthy. Check it out:
For the second year in a row, the Houston Zoo comes alive after dark with drinks, food, and endless fun. This adults-only event is the wildest adventure you'll go on all summer.
Elephant, cougar, and reptile keepers will be hosting talks from 6:30-8:30. Any and all of your burning questions about the animals and how they're cared for will be answered.
May 16 is opening night, and it's a 90's-themed throwback party. Jam out to classic hits and play retro arcade games in your best vintage attire.
On June 20, you'll get exclusive access to the zoo's newest wetland exhibit. Alligators, screech owls, and whooping cranes are just a few of the residents you'll be introduced to. There will also be tacos and margaritas!
Step into a Silent Disco on July 18. Each person receives a pair of headphones that offer three different music channels, so everyone can choose their favorite. Let your body move to the beat underneath the black light glow and learn why dance is so important to one particular breed of chicken. You'll also have the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with several zoo residents.
August 15 is "All About That Bubbly," where you'll sip champagne and prosecco while lounging around the tranquil Reflection Pool. Watch a live ice-carving show and make unforgettable memories in the photo booth.
Address: 6200 Hermann Park Drive, Houston, TX 77030. Each After Dark event takes place from 6-10 p.m.
Tickets are $35 per person, or attend all four nights for $120.
