Where wildlife meets wild lights! ZooLights! returns to Hogle Zoo for it’s 10th illuminating season, with more sparkling lights, over 250 animated light displays and more nightly fun than ever before. Enjoy dinner at the Beastro, with plenty of indoor seating. And don’t forget to pick up a warm cup of delicious hot chocolate or check out our vast selection of seasonal treats for dessert!

Grab your hologram glasses to be gaze at our new 24′ animated Christmas tree, walk along lit pathways and through our popular 135-foot lighted tunnel – it’s a crowd favorite! Get up close with a polar bear, grizzlies, seals, and sea lions in the heated underwater viewing building in Rocky Shores. Take a ride on the Conservation Carousel (weather permitting) and then stop in to see Santa Claus at the Macy’s Santa Station! Finish off the night with a stop at the Wild Zootique to finish your holiday shopping. It’s Utah’s brightest holiday family tradition – it’s ZooLights at Utah’s Hogle Zoo!

*If Christmas Eve falls on a Th, F or Sat, the Zoo will close at 9:00 p.m.
