LA Zoo Lights: Nightly Admission


Open nightly from November 18, 2016 through January 8, 2017*

ZooLAbrate the Holidays! L.A. Zoo Lights is a not-to-be-missed nighttime holiday light experience that debuted in 2014 and has grown each year since. This year’s event promises to be even more magical, as we “ZooLAbrate” our Golden Anniversary with more lights, and more nights.
  • Take a 60- to 90-minute stroll through a large area of the Zoo featuring animal-themed LEDs, lasers, 3D projections, and animated displays. 
  • Dazzling new features include interactive photo ops, a “black light party” within The LAIR reptile house, and a reimagined water show. 
  • Capture your holiday memories in a photo with Santa Claus (on select dates). 
  • Meet our live reindeer family! 
  • Warm up with hot cocoa and other holiday treats.
  • Free parking!
Prices as low as $11.

As L.A. Zoo Lights is a special event, the only animals on display will be the reindeer at Reindeer Romp Village and critters within The L.A.I.R. The rest of the Zoo’s animals will be off exhibit and snug in their beds. This event is rain or shine. No refunds or exchanges.
