Cheyenne Mountain Zoo gets in the holiday spirt during the Electric Safari, a yearly celebration that finds the zoo lit up by more than a million lights and 85 light sculptures. Though it takes place after normal zoo hours—between 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m., to be exact—select indoor exhibits remain open, and special animal shows and keeper talks take place nightly. This Groupon also includes access to the Mountaineer Sky Ride, a chairlift-style ride that provides eye-popping views of the glittering zoo below.
Cheyenne Mountain Zoo
At Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, you might come face to face with a giraffe, or a moose. All you have to do is ask. The zoo offers firsthand encounters with 14 species, although they're more playdates than encounters—participants often bust out animal-friendly toys, or feed treats to their chosen creature.
Of course, guests can always encounter animals the traditional way. On visits to the zoo's enclosures, everyone watches reptiles, monkeys, birds, and amphibians go about their daily business, whether that means swinging from branches, pecking at bugs, or scanning grocery ads for good deals on fur wash. For fuller context, guests can attend zookeeper talks, watch animal feeding shows, or attend a varied slate of educational programming for kids as young as 18 months.
