Enormous, Illuminated Animals Back at the Minnesota Zoo this Winter
Nature Illuminated features a bunch of massive, lit-up zoo animals that you can admire from the comfort of your car. I didn't go last year based on pictures I've seen, these things are seriously huge. During your drive around the zoo, you'll also be accompanied by narration along the way.
Something new for this year's Nature Illuminated, though, is that there will now be a walk-through option. Last year (the first year) it was drive-thru only because of COVID, but now that things are sort of settling down, both walk-through and drive-thru are available depending on which you prefer. However, I'm pretty sure the narration is only available for the drive-thru option, so if you'd like the narration experience, the drive-thru option is for you.
Nature Illuminated will be taking place from December 2nd through January 16th and tickets vary depending on if you are doing the drive-thru or walk-through and which day you get tickets for.
If you'd like to do the drive-thru with the narration, that will cost you $35-$60 per vehicle. If would rather do the walk-through experience, those tickets are $14-$20 per person. You can find more ticket details and can purchase tickets HERE.
