Two more Late Nights at the Zoo have been added on September 10 and 17 with the new hours of 6 to 9:30 p.m. at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. Gather your friends and enjoy the Zoo while relaxing with wildlife, food trucks and drinks. New with these evenings will be the opportunity to visit the Owen Sea Lion Shores Exhibit, opening Labor Day weekend. Late Nights is for adults only, ages 21 and older.
“We thank our wonderful Omaha community for coming out to the summer Late Night series. The financial support the Zoo gains from our events is critical for animal care and day-to-day operations,” said Dennis Schnurbusch, senior vice president of operations and COO of Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. “We are excited to include access to the Zoo’s newest exhibit, Owen Sea Lion Shores, for Late Nights at the Zoo in September.”
Each ticket to Late Nights at the Zoo includes one complimentary drink ticket, access to select Zoo exhibits after-hours including Owen Sea Lion Shores, Desert Dome and Scott Aquarium, and the ability to purchase cuisine from local food trucks. Additional drink tickets are available for purchase at multiple spots throughout the event area. All guests must be ages 21 and older and must bring a valid, state-issued ID to the event. No exceptions will be made for any reason.
Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is committed to taking the necessary precautions to protect the health and wellness of all staff, guests and animals. The Zoo has adopted the principals of a “healthy you, healthy Zoo.” During Late Nights at the Zoo, face masks are strongly encouraged outdoors and are required to enter indoor exhibits. Face masks are available for purchase onsite if a guest does not have one to enter an indoor exhibit.
Each Late Nights’ capacity is limited to 3,000 total attendees. To guarantee admission, the Zoo recommends purchasing tickets in advance online. Advance ticket purchases offer a discounted admission price of $13 per person for Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium members and $23 per person for non-members. Admission tickets can also be purchased the day of the event at the Zoo main entrance for $18 for Zoo members and $28 for non-members.
