NIGHTTIME ADVENTURES

Brevard Zoo offers children’s night hikes, overnights, family night hikes and scouting adventures….YES in the Zoo in the dark of the night! Walking through the Zoo at night is a completely different experience. The paths that had been familiar during the day take on a different look and feel. Small creatures can make big noises and others are on the move.  Come explore the zoo after hours with us!

Parents can even enjoy an evening out while your kids embark on a wild escapade at the Zoo. The night hike includes an animal encounter,  Zoo excursion, activities, games and pizza for dinner and overnights include all the above and a continental breakfast!
