It's a Whole New Zoo at Night.

Come see what the animals do while the rest of us sleep! In a fun-filled night to remember, you can explore Cheyenne Mountain Zoo by moonlight. Designed for 10 to 175 people, WildNights is a great team-building experience for families, scouts and groups of all ages.

On your WildNight, you'll arrive at the Zoo at 6 p.m. and stay overnight until 8 a.m. the next day. We'll provide dinner and activities; you bring your sleeping bag, pajamas and other personal items.

Note: Kids must be at least 5 years old to attend.

WildNights for Scouts

Our Wildnights cover a lot of important information in a fun and exciting way for scouts to work toward special badges.

Bring your Troop to the Zoo and gain the knowledge to work towards these badges:

  • Reptile and Amphibian Study
  • Mammal Study
  • Fish and Wildlife

Please Note- Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Staff cannot sign off on any badges, but can provide your troop with some information required for these specific badges.

General Information:

All Wildnight programs include pizza for dinner. Each program also includes a guided evening tour of the zoo (does not necessarily include access to entire zoo), with giraffe feeding and an up close animal encounter in the Loft. Participants will also have the option of purchasing specialty souvenir t-shirts and patches that are not available in the zoo’s gift shop. Breakfast consists of bagels, cereal, and fruit followed by a guided morning tour. Admission to the zoo for the duration of the following day is also included with a Wildnight.
