During Wild Lights the Saint Louis Zoo becomes a holiday wonderland with over ONE MILLION twinkle lights and whimsical animal-themed displays!
You can warm up with the animals at Penguin & Puffin Coast and the Insectarium, make a craft and play some games. On weekends there will be holiday carolers entertaining throughout the zoo. And of course you can do a little holiday shopping in the gift shop or get a special holiday beverage while you enjoy the lights.
Ride the Carousel and watch “The Polar Express 4D Experience” at the 4D Theater–for FREE!
