After Dark Adventure

Want to experience the Zoo after dark, but camping is not for you? Schedule an After Dark Adventure for your group! We’ll enjoy animal encounters, activities, an evening snack, and an after dark tour of the Zoo! These programs are typically scheduled from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.

After Dark Adventures are appropriate for ages 5 and up, and one adult can accompany up to five children. Everyone ages 17 and under must have a responsible adult with them at the event. Each participant must be registered to attend, including adults.

If your group has at least 10 people (including adults), you can schedule your own After Dark Adventure for a date that you choose (pending educator availability). Groups must have at least 10 participants (including adults) to reserve a program.


Kids: $20

Adults: $15

Call (605) 367-8313 Ext. 233 or email to schedule your After Dark Adventure!

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world.  The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones.  Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
