Flashlight Safari

Join us on October 23 & 24 from 7:00-9:00 pm for this educational Halloween adventure! Many of our animals become active at night. Take a peek at their secret after-hours activities with a special safari through our Exhibit Gallery with only a flashlight to guide you! Get an up-close look at Madagascar hissing cockroaches, a tarantula, emperor scorpion, and boa constrictor. You can even touch a few animals, like an American alligator. Take in a live show in our Program Center. Did you know snakes are among the most efficient nocturnal predators, even though they have poor eyesight? Their excellent sense of smell aids in detecting and tracking prey. Learn all this and more with our nocturnal shows at 7:00 and 8:00. Experience Dinosaurs Come to Life lit with torches and spotlights! Trek through this prehistoric path to see the winged Quetzalcoatlus, venom-spitting Dilophosaurus, feathered Citipati, a whole Tyrannosaurus rex family, and more! Enjoy other themed activities, complimentary hot chocolate, and a sweet treat to take home! Visit for more event details.
