Tickets for holiday experiences at ZooLights Presented by ComEd and Invesco QQQ at Lincoln Park Zoo

About this Event

To help you celebrate the season at ZooLights presented by ComEd and Invesco QQQ, we have created special experiences that you can enjoy while practicing social distancing and staying safe.

THIS IS NOT AN ENTRY TICKET TO ZOOLIGHTS. While entry tickets can be secured through lpzoolights.eventbrite.com, guests can purchase experience tickets to use once inside this holiday extravaganza. Please keep in mind that ZooLights tickets must be secured before you purchase an experience ticket. You will not be able to enter ZooLights with only an experience ticket.

Experience tickets will be available at the zoo, but in limited quantity. We encourage guest to purchase experience tickets online in advance.

All experiences at ZooLights require one ticket per person to enter. You will receive special 3D Holospex® Glasses at each experience; the glasses were specially created for each individual experience. Collect them all!

Tickets cost $3 for one, $27 for 10, or $51 for 20.

Minimal service fees may apply to your order.
