Zoomance

This was the first event I attended with this group and I wanted to do it again. Last year it was a huge crowd so we might want to get there a little earlier.

The Detroit Zoo is inviting adults to rekindle their childhood love for the Zoo at an after-hours adults-only event called Summer Zoomance.

The 21-and-older evening is scheduled for Thursday, July 12, 2012 6 pm to 9 pm, rain or shine.  Admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the gate for all guests and parking is $5 for non-members and free for Detroit Zoo members.

Summer Zoomance will allow guests to revisit their childhood memories of the Detroit Zoo while creating new ones during a peaceful twilight stroll among the Zoo's award-winning habitats.  Adult beverages and food will be available for purchase and live entertainment will be located at Rackham Fountain.

Summer Zoomance attendees can visit all their favorite animals and see the many new residents that now call the Detroit Zoo home.  Fresh faces include seven new rockhopper penguins,  7-year-old polar bear Nuka and 13-year-old Amur tiger Kolyma. Also meeting guests for the first time this summer are Mike, Thor and Boo, the three orphaned grizzly cubs rescued from Alaska and brought to the Detroit Zoo last December.

The Tauber Family Railroad will be operating that evening, allowing passengers to relax and enjoy a scenic ride for a one-way fare of $3.

This is a 21 and over adults-only event.

    good times! expected there to be more food options. The gyro was good, but I think next year I might grab dinner ahead of time or after.

    BTW even if you have a membership, because it is a special event I believe they do charge you for the ticket, but parking is free.

    Thanks Amy for posting all the information. I will be sending out my phone number once the RSVP's close so everyone has it and can let me know if anything changes.

    If you are going to come later it doesn't matter as long as you let me know if you are going to be late so the group can move on and you can join us when you get there.

  • Tom A

    so if you buy the tickets ahead of time and print them out, does it matter what time you get there?

  • Amy

    No, but I would definitely purchase ahead of time as the lines otherwise were really long!
