Over one million sparkling lights, and you don’t have to hang a single one! Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s Electric Safari runs Friday, December 7 - Sunday, December 9 and Friday, December 14 - Tuesday, January 1 (Electric Safari closed Christmas Eve) from 5:30 - 8:30pm nightly. Continue your family’s holiday tradition, or start a new one, when you stroll around the Zoo viewing hundreds of lighted trees and more than 40 animated light sculptures. Enjoy Electric Safari’s holiday lights from the ground, and soar into the night sky on the Mountaineer Sky Ride. Special Zookeeper talks will be offered all 21 nights of Electric Safari and select exhibits will be open, including the giraffe barn, Rocky Mountain Wild, Asian Highlands, Monkey Pavilion, Lion's Lair and for the first time ever, the new Elephant Barn will be open to the public - only during Electric Safari! . Santa will be busy granting holiday wishes every night through December 23 and will be available to communicate through sign language on Wednesday, December 19. Plus, this year, Santa will return to the Zoo for a special “Thank You Santa” evening on December 29. For more information about Electric Safari visit:
