New to this year's Zoo Lights event is the Electric Jungle, within and around the Zoo's Primate Panorama exhibit. Just before guests enter, they will discover flamingo sculptures in the Flamingo Pond lit by vibrant pink, orange and yellow lights. Once inside, they will find all primate sculptures in one place, such as a giant gorilla and a monkey swinging throughout the plaza. Also new this year, across the park near the polar bear habitat, new projectors will create a vivid replica of the Northern Lights.

Admission to Zoo Lights, without a discount, is $13 for adults (12-64), $9 for children (3-11), $11 for senior citizens (65+) and children 2 and under are admitted free.
