L.A. ZOO LIGHTS

L.A. Zoo Lights, an award-winning, brilliant display of lights and animation, features 500,000+ LED lights, a disco-ball forest, a glittering twinkle tunnel, and stunning 3-D animated projections. Glowing animals “come to life” throughout the grounds, including leaping frogs, somersaulting meerkats, strutting flamingos, swinging monkeys, and stained-glass animals – including the endangered California condor, Masai giraffe, Asian elephant, and more – roam a glowing savanna. New this year, the L.A. Zoo Lights experience includes picturesque Elephant Circle, which is transformed into a kaleidoscopic savanna. The popular Twinkle Tunnel has been expanded and features cascading swirls of light and a spectacular LED light show.

L.A. Zoo Lights is a self-guided 60- to 90-minute walking tour through a large area of the Zoo filled with creative light displays, seasonal cheer, and festive food and drinks available for purchase.
