Wild Lights at the Magnetic Hill Zoo 

Wild Lights at the Magnetic Hill Zoo


*our family received passes in exchange for writing this post. All opinions & experiences remain my own.

Our family have been Magnetic Hill Zoo patrons for years. We have had season passes several years, attended birthday parties and zoo camps and always try to fit in at least one Spring Sunday opening each year. Now, we have a new yearly event to attend. I was looking forward to seeing and experiencing the Wild Lights display, but really had no idea just how well it was done.

Friday night we bundled up and ventured out to check out the Wild Lights at Magnetic Hill Zoo. Having never been there at night before, Clayton (almost 4yrs old) was a little timid at first. Once he saw all the lights, it he was on to exploring. Walking through the admissions building and stepping out into the park, the lights hit you, right away something magical happens. Trees are lit, a giant snow globe greets you before you enter the park pathways. On your walk down the pathways, lights are strung above lighting the way. Animated lights of deer jumping, swans, and monkeys are just a few of the fun features on your walk around the zoo.  There were so many large trees almost fully lit, it was just breathtaking.

We stopped by the canteen for hot chocolate, and you can also warm hands and feet by the bonfire along the pathway nearby.



Check out the look on Clayton’s face above….pure awe!

As you start to feel the night’s chill you can slip in to visit some of the zoo animals in the Primate Center, Discovery Center, and Eco-dome to warm up a little.


There are also special afternoon viewings of the outdoor winter hardy animals on weekends and December 26-30 only from 2-5 pm. We went after dark, but I would suggest going around 4pm to see more animals and walking back through to enjoy the lights as it gets dark.

Running through the month of December, this event features hundreds of thousands of holiday lights throughout the 40 acre park.

Bundle up and head over for an evening stroll through the zoo. Take the whole family and check out the beautiful displays!
