Tulsa Zoo Friends Members provide much-needed support for the zoo through annual memberships. Your membership supports exhibit improvements, and it also helps to provide essential items for the zoo, such as enrichment and food for animals. Your dedication to the zoo helps us continue our commitment to conservation.
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. Our very own parrot alarm clocks will likely provide the wake-up call. 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.
Herp, Herp, Hooray!

Three cheers for Herpetology! Reptiles and amphibians rock! In this cold-blooded family overnight, we will learn all about our slimy and scaly friends. That night, we will discover what makes these mysterious animals so fascinating and even get an up close encounter with a few. The next morning, meet with a zookeeper for a special talk about one of our mystifying residents. Enjoy exploring zoo trails, visiting zoo animals, playing special games, roasting marshmallows over a fire, and much more!
This overnight is open to multiple families with children 6 – 17 years old, allowing them to come together to enjoy our overnight experiences. All children must be supervised by a guardian or parent, and the zoo requires one adult for every 4 children.
The cost includes evening snacks, a continental breakfast, and admission to the zoo after the program ends on Sunday. Once registered, you will receive an electronic confirmation with details on items you and your family should bring along for this overnight adventure.
Participants sleep in our climate-controlled education auditorium. Please note the zoo has no shower facilities, and that is not included.

Chose From Two Exciting LUNA Topics:
Nocturnal Adventures – When the lights go out animals use some remarkable adaptations to help them navigate their night time environment. From seismic sound to odor receptors galore we will discover how animals use their senses to explore the dark. How will your senses match up against some of the masters of the night?
Zoo Mystery Investigation – Who at the zoo made that poo!? Help us solve some animal mysteries- from the vet clinic to wildlife exhibits- as we trek around zoo grounds after dark. Participants will examine animal hair and skin samples, compare blood slides, discover clues from wildlife crimes and much more as you solve zoo mysteries.
