Experience an all-new Zoolights this year! Soar over the Oakland hills in our festively-lit gondolas and see the entire Bay Area like never before! We’ve added cool new laser light shows and much more to our hundreds of thousands of holiday lights and structures brightening Oakland's night sky. Other highlights include a candy cane lane-themed Adventure Landing with rides your kids will love, an adventure on the Outback Express train, rocking around the Christmas trees and a music-themed light show that's sure to blow out any bah-hum-bugs! Don’t forget to warm up with some hot cocoa and homemade s’mores, available at Flamingo Plaza at the Zoo’s main entrance. [More]
