Come out for a night of epic fun at the Minnesota Zoo.

In this adventurous family overnight, you’ll get the unique chance to visit our gigantic summer visitors after everyone else has gone home for the night. As twilight settles in, walk amongst dinosaurs big and small as you enjoy the peaceful sounds of the woods around you. You’ll learn all about these ancestors of living birds and reptiles, as well as getting some new facts on how we create an exhibit like this. We’ll end the evening by setting up camp at the Wells Fargo Family Farm for the night! Depending on the weather, participants will sleep in one of our farm buildings or in tents on the grassy fields outside. Foam sleeping mats are provided for under your sleeping bags.

Cost includes all activities, behind-the-scenes tour, evening pizza snack, breakfast, and a T-shirt. This event is open to people ages five and older. Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Fees:
$50 per person for Zoo members
$58 per person for non-members

This program includes admission to the DINOSAURS Special Exhibit.

Overnights start at 6:30 p.m. and end at 9 a.m. the following morning. After the conclusion of the program all participants are invited to enjoy the rest of the day at the Minnesota Zoo.

A minimum of one adult and one child is required. We need a minimum of 15 people for the overnight to take place.
