Houston Zoo Lights returns with fun new features and a few changes to keep you safe

One of Houston's favorite -- and prettiest -- holiday traditions is back at the Houston Zoo.

HOUSTON — The Houston Zoo is decked out for the holidays with thousands of brightly-colored, twinkling lights everywhere you look.

The public is invited to Zoo Lights presented by TXU starting Saturday, Nov. 14. 

Guests can stroll through the new 125-foot-long Infinity Tunnel of Light, see dragons come to life in the 4-D Enchanted Forest and experience Winter Wonderland. 

Share your memory with a selfie on a giant ice throne and take a socially distanced photo with Santa as he prepares for the holidays in his workshop.  

This year’s Zoo Lights event will feature a few changes to keep visitors safe.

  • As with every Zoo visit, guests 10 years and older are required to wear proper face coverings.
  • Timed tickets will allow for proper social distancing while enjoying the sights and sounds of the season. Tickets must be purchased online.
  • There will be increased cleaning and disinfecting.

Zoo Lights will open daily from 5:30 – 10:30 p.m. with the last entry at 9:30 p.m.

Tickets for Zoo Lights are purchased separately from regular zoo tickets. 

Tickets prices range from $12.90 - $29. Buy tickets here.
