Experience the zoo in a whole new light — er, dark — when it opens for an evening of animal encounters, music from a deejay, an inflatable water slide, squirt gun fun and other special activities. The park’s water play areas will be open for kids, and adults can order a cold beer or chilled glass of wine at the bar.
