It’s a Delaware County event enjoyed by numerous families during this time of the year.
Central Ohio’s family holiday tradition, Wildlights, is being presented again by the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, this year from 5 PM to close from November 20 to January 3 (with the exception of Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day).
Enjoy animated light shows, food trucks, Polar Bear Express, and Santa during designated hours.
Reservations are required. The Zoo has just announced, however, that to manage the number of guests entering the Zoo during Wildlights, beginning on Member Night (Thursday, November 19) and for the remainder of the Wildlights season, Members can enjoy the Zoo BEFORE 3 p.m. without a reservation.
Members will then be required to reserve an entry time for admission after 3 PM to enjoy Wildlights.
All of our other guests will continue to be required to make advance reservations for timed entry throughout the entire day/evening. No walkups will be permitted. All reservations can be made online.
Until November 19, Members can still visit the Zoo after 2 PM without a timed entry/reservation.
