Trivia and Trails Adult Safari

Sept. 16 – 4-7 p.m.

Reconnect with your inner child and explore the Zoo at dusk in this adults-only Zoo experience. Beer will be available for purchase at the start of the program as you unwind and work with your friends in an animal trivia challenge while enjoying some light bites.

Instructors will lead you on a tour of the Zoo as our dusk-loving animals get cozy for the evening. Interactive activities and hands-on experiences will round out the night. The program runs from 4-7 p.m. and is for adults 21 and older only.

Comfortable walking shoes and weather appropriate clothing is recommended. Every participant will take home a souvenir Dallas Zoo beer glass that can be brought back to the Zoo for discounted beer pours.
