Don’t miss an unforgettable nighttime adventure with Dinos, Dragons, and Dancing! This unique family-friendly evening at the Zoo includes kids’ karaoke, a DJ dance party, crafts, animal encounters, pop-up keeper talks, food trucks, and more. Experience Dinosaurs: Unextinct at the L.A. Zoo and follow the clues to find “Pete’s Dragon,” inspired by Disney’s upcoming theatrical release.

Entertainment highlights include the Animal Artistry Paint Party, live kids’ karaoke with Close Encounters, a Pete’s Dragon photo op, and special after-hours access to the Dinosaurs exhibit, plus fun sponsor giveaways.

Dinosaurs: Unextinct at the L.A. Zoo features 17 life-size, lifelike dinosaurs—including two sets of dino parents and kids—along with photo ops, a fossil dig, and 3D animations that can be unlocked through a custom app. Family Jam is the only opportunity for kids to experience this prehistoric adventure after regular Zoo hours. (Temporary exhibit runs through October 31, 2016.)

NOTE: Food and beverages are not included in the ticket price. Outside food and beverages, backpacks, coolers, and oversized purses will not be permitted. During evening events, animals are given access to their night quarters for their comfort. Therefore, most animals will not be on exhibit.

Among the food trucks at Family Jam are Kona Ice Truck, Lobsta Truck, Rice Balls of Fire, The Lobos Truck, the Grilled Cheese Truck, Paradise Ice Cream and Austyn’s.
