After Hours

At the OKC Zoo, Go Wild!

Overnight Programs

Can you build the highest ant hill? Jump as far as a wallaby? Catch some slimy fish? Do you think you’re as skilled as a Zoolympian? Whether it’s capturing their lunch or hiding with ease, animals have amazing abilities that help them survive! Test your abilities as you compete to like the animals do!

Millions of visitors see the Zoo in daylight but very few see it by flashlight. Overnights are perfect for: 

  • Schools

  • Corporate Groups

  • Families

  • Scouts

  • And everyone in between!
