Cost: not available
Age limit: Not available
Ongoing: until Monday, January 1, 2018
The Zoo’s seasonal Jungle Bells celebration is a pretty chill time, as it plays up animals from colder climates while staying open until 8 p.m. The Northern Frontier’s Holiday Forest (open between 3 and 8 p.m.) features a trail through specially lit trees to the winter-loving animals. During the evening hours there are special presentations where zookeepers show off animals such as cheetahs or raccoons and explain their unique features. Non-animal attractions include acrobats, musicians, a 4-D ride that duplicates the Polar Express, and a zoo-themed version of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” recited by a guy named Dr. Zoolittle (who may or may not be a real doctor).
