- $39 for a drive-through wildlife safari with admission to Wildlights holiday show for four (up to $91.96 value)
On December 21, 22, 28, and 29 from 5 to 8 p.m., visitors are treated to a light show synchronized to holiday music. To keep the mood festive, there will also be craft projects and animal shows for kids, as well as coffee, hot cocoa, and cookies to snack on.
The 600-acre park plays host to visitors who drive through the more than four miles of winding grounds to catch up-close glimpses of its inhabitants—over 550 wild animals from Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Bison, zebras, and giraffes roam the wide-open surroundings, living in harmony with tigers, lions, and bears. Founded by Frank Hart in 1972, the park has helped to protect endangered species while educating the public about them and their important roles in the fragile ecosystem. Visitors can make arrangements for private and personalized animal encounters as well as visit the safari village zoo, botanical gardens, and gift shop.
