Lights, Animals and Holiday Spirit!
Electric Safari at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is the only place in Colorado Springs where you can see over 85 one-of-a-kind light sculptures while celebrating the season with our animals at the same time! Electric Safari was voted 3rd Best Zoo Lights in the U.S. in 2019 and 2020 by USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice. This year’s event will celebrate 30 years of holiday cheer, and Santa Claus himself will be listening to wishes December 3-5 and 10-23. Come celebrate the holiday season with sparkling lights, animals and fun for the whole family!
- Santa will be available for photos and to hear wishes in the Safari Lodge during Electric Safari evenings through Wednesday, Dec. 23.
