Tickets are required for all guests ages 2 and older (under 2 admitted free). Tickets sold in advance (either online or on site at Customer Care during daytime Detroit Zoo hours) will range from $15 to $20 throughout the 32-night run of the event. Members and guests are required to pay an $8 parking fee per car.
The best way to guarantee your Wild Lights reservation is to book your visit in advance online. A limited number of walk-up tickets will be sold at the gate for all nights and time slots for $20 per person. We recommend guests always check the online web store for the best prices available. Reservations will be limited and spaced in 30-minute intervals to allow visitors to maintain physical distance. Please arrive on time for your reservation to ensure entry. Those who arrive late may be required to wait for the next available entry time.

Children younger than 2 are admitted free.

Member discounts do not apply to this event.

Wild Lights is held in rain, snow or shine. Please come dressed for the weather!

Masks for all guests ages 5 and up are required. 

New this year, Detroit Zoological Society Members will have exclusive access to the first three nights of Wild Lights. Following those three nights, half of the tickets for the other dates will be reserved for members only. Space is limited. The best way to guarantee your Wild Lights experience is to purchase your advance tickets soon. 

As we continue to prioritize the health and safety for all who experience Wild Lights, we’ve made a few modifications. We will be limiting the nightly capacity of Wild Lights to 2,100 guests with no more than 1,050 in the park at one time during the event. Also, dining locations will be open, but seating will be limited to outdoor areas only, and the 4D Theater experience and Winter Rink will be closed.
