Snooz-a-pa-ZOO-za Family Overnights

Snooz-a-pa-Zoo-za Family Overnight: Zoorassic Overnight

You feel the ground shaking, once still water is casting ripples, suddenly you hear a ROAR! A T-Rex is stalking zoo grounds; find him before he finds you! Perfecting archeological dig techniques, creating casts from real bones, and riding a Tyrannosaurs Rex sunken into the earth are only part of this Snooz-a-pa-Zoo-za Family Overnight. This opportunity will only come once in several million years - see these animals before they become.....extinct!

We will spend the evening exploring the zoo trails, having exciting live animal presentations, enjoying interactive games, and more!  In the morning, we will have an up-close encounter with an animal that has a voice that would make a T-Rex flinch! 

Evening snacks, continental breakfast, and admission to the zoo after the program ends on Saturday are all included in this package.  Once registered you will receive an electronic confirmation with details on items you and your family should bring along for this overnight adventure.

Registration Coming in August 2014

 

Who can attend?

This overnight is open to multiple families with children 6 years and older coming 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.

Due the amount of hiking and late evening activities we ask that families with children younger than 6 years old not attend.
