Are you Ready for a Little Holiday Magic?

Join us on November 16 or 17 or on December 1 or December 8 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. for a jolly old evening lifted right out of the pages of a favorite Christmas tale. To enjoy the fun, snug everyone up in their flannel PJs, tug on some warm slippers, and head out to the Zoo to hitch a ride on its magical Polar Bear Express.
Bells and lights will twinkle from the bus, and riders can carol their way deep into the Zoo to claim a souvenier cup (filled with hot cocoa) and a special cookie, circle time after time on the carousel, and claim a Golden Ticket to board the SimEx iWerks 4-D Polar Express. At each 13-minute showing, one guest will receive the First Gift of Christmas from Santa and, when the show ends, every guest will receive a shiny silver bell from Santa’s sleigh.
Throughout the evening, the plaza will bustle with other fun: conversations with Mr. and Mrs. Santa, face painters, free photos from FotoFX, roaming costumed characters, Holiday storytelling—and, if you listen hard enough—maybe even the sounds of Red Wolves, elk, or lions singing in the season.
