Creatures Of The Night Returns to ZooAmerica

Bring a Flashlight for a Nighttime Tour of the Zoo's Outdoor Habitats

Creatures Of The Night at ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park is back this fall for a "howling" good time! Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Nov. 1, the Zoo will open after dark from 6-8 p.m. for an exploration into the nighttime habits of the nocturnal North American animals. It's a hoot!

During the Halloween-themed program, guests of all ages can explore the Zoo by flashlight under the cover of night. Guests are encouraged to bring their own flashlights for optimal viewing of the outdoor habitats. 

Other fun and educational activities include an animal encounter near the pronghorn exhibit, a short program with live animals on the stage at Timber Treats, and a live striped skunk display on the patio. Staff will be available at the wolf exhibit to answer questions about the two new female wolves that joined the gray wolf pack this summer. Lucky guests may even get to hear them howling under the stars.

Creatures Of The Night is included with admission to Hersheypark In The Dark when entered from inside the Park. Separate admission is also available at the zoo’s off-street entrance. If you can’t make it to Creatures Of The Night, there are still plenty of opportunities to visit ZooAmerica with daily operations this fall. View the hours here.

For guest and animal safety, face coverings are required during Creatures Of The Night and our indoor areas remain closed given social distancing guidelines. A reservation is not required to visit ZooAmerica, but admission may not be guaranteed if guests arrive and the Zoo is at full capacity. For a full overview of safety enhancements, click here.
