This year, the installations will feature more than 2 million LED lights sparkling over 80 acres, with new installations added including Aurora Borealis, Savannah Sunset, and Electric Jungle.

Tickets for Zoo non-members cost $25 for ages 16+ and $15 for children ages 3-15. Children 2 years of age or younger can get in for free. 

Members can get in for a $5 discount during the members-only viewing period from Nov. 21 through Dec. 2. Special add-on packages with custom 3D HoloSpex glasses and souvenir mugs are also available for an additional cost. 

The Zoo Lights exhibition is scheduled to be open Sunday through Thursday from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. All ages are welcome. 

In addition, a special low-sensory night for Zoo Lights will be offered on Dec. 31 for those more sensitive to environmental stimuli. It will feature reduced crowds, no strobing effects, music played at low volumes and quiet rooms for anyone who may need to step away from the excitement. Attractions will be modified and sensory kits will be available for check-out at no additional cost.

Those interested in purchasing tickets may visit the Denver Zoo website.
