Electric Safari

December 3 - 5, 2021

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, 4250 Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Rd, Colorado Springs, CO


Electric Safari at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is the only place in Colorado Springs where you can see over 60 one-of-a-kind light sculptures while celebrating the season with our animals at the same time! New this year, you’ll enjoy photos with our larger-than-life illuminated inflatable animals, located throughout the Zoo. Electric Safari was voted 3rd Best Zoo Lights in the U.S. in 2019 and 2020 by USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice. This year’s event will celebrate 31 years of holiday cheer, and Santa Claus will be listening to wishes December 3-5 and 10-23. Come celebrate the holiday season with sparkling lights, animals and fun for the whole family! For all the details, visit:
