Full Zoo Experience · All Ages

We invite you to our newest Zoo event, silent night. Our busy lives are often filled with schedules, responsibilities and noise. Come prepared for a peacefully quiet evening away from the pressures of the city below.

  • Connect with our animals peacefully and quietly, while enjoying the natural beauty of Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
  • Guest are encouraged to turn off their phones, quiet their voices and tap into their own mindfulness at this after-hours Zoo event.
  • For this evening, the Zoo will embrace only the sounds of our animals and surrounding nature.
  • Enjoy a quiet view of the sunset from Encounter Africa, or a centering meditation class in the EdVenture Building.
