‘Tis the season to show your wild side at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Electric Safari! 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of this electrifying event that runs from December 11 through January 1st, excluding Christmas eve and Christmas day.
Watch as the sun goes down and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo transforms into a technicolor wonderland where you can see over 85 light sculptures that take the form of all your favorite animals. You can also visit some of the zoo’s real-life residents, although some exhibits will be limited or unavailable during the event.
Of course, Christmas wouldn’t be possible without the man in red himself! Santa Claus will be available to hear your Christmas wishes and take photos through December 23.
Don’t miss this seasonal spectacular that was voted "3rd Best Zoo Lights in the U.S." by USA TODAY in 2019—at America’s highest zoo above sea level!
