U.S. Bank Wild Lights at the Saint Louis Zoo is back for another beautifully lit season. Your family can stroll through the Zoo grounds surrounded by a million lights! Visitors will see animated light displays, enjoy fireside stories, campfire s'mores, fun photo opportunities, the Conservation Carousel, 4-D Theater featuring Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and lots more in this enchanting holiday wonderland.
You'll enjoy your favorite Zoo attractions beautifully lit up with twinkling lights, waddle in the Penguin & Puffin Coast, get buggy at the Bayer Insectarium, see whimsical animal-themed displays across the Zoo grounds, and go underwater through the Sea Lion Sound tunnel.
