Join us as we explore the Tulsa Zoo after hours. The moon’s glow transforms the well-known zoo walkways into paths for new adventures. Enjoy fun-filled activities, prowl the trails during a zoo night hike, and experience live animal presentations. After a night of adventure, glide into a sea of sleeping bags surrounded by the call of the wild. This exciting adventure is sure to create memories you will treasure.

The Tulsa Zoo offers two exciting options, LUNA Group Overnights and Snooz-a-pa-ZOO-za Family Overnights.


Snooz-a-pa-ZOO-za Family Overnights


Dates: 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, February 8th through 10:00 a.m. Sunday, February 9th

Our first family overnight of 2020 celebrates the Chinese Year of the Rat.  Are you as brave as a tiger? Do you have the intelligence of a monkey? Can you be as strong as an ox? Come find what animal hides in your heart! That evening, we will learn about all 12 animals that make up the zodiac through fun activities, up-close animal encounters and a night-time zoo tour. In the morning, we will enjoy breakfast while learning about a feathered friend and then head out to meet with a zookeeper for a special animal chat. Look forward to exploring zoo trails, visiting zoo animals, playing special games, roasting marshmallows over a fire, and much more!
