Overnights

At the OKC Zoo, Go Wild!

Overnight Programs

Mischief is afoot! One of our animal ambassadors ransacked our classroom looking for their favorite snack. Use your investigative skills to examine the crime scene, narrow down the suspects,  find the culprit and solve our “Zoo Done It” mystery!

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!
