Tonight is the grand opening! :DNovember 18, 2011 2:15 pm at 2:15 pm #470423
Go early or sit in your car for a looong time trying to get in. My parents house is on Riverside Dr. more than a mile south of the zoo. Every year it’s backed up past their driveway.
I’m for sure not saying don’t bother and don’t go. I go every year I can because it’s a great holiday spirit raiser. I’m just saying plan well.November 18, 2011 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #470424
I went last night for the member’s sneak preview. Pretty solid job done this year, as with most years past as well. I would highly suggest not going on a weekend as vestanpance said, it gets pretty darn crowded up there.November 18, 2011 3:08 pm at 3:08 pm #470425
We’ve gone a few times over the past few years, but never to opening night. Sounds like it might be worthwhile to go another day as I’ve never seen traffic too back up when we’ve gone. ;)November 28, 2011 6:13 pm at 6:13 pm #470426
Always enjoy taking my wife and son to this. Bringing a thermos of really good hot cocoa is recommended.December 10, 2011 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #470427
Do they still do the Wednesday half off for Franklin County residents during wildlights?December 11, 2011 4:36 am at 4:36 am #470428
I would never do this, but I hear some people put something harder than hot cocoa in their thermos. ;)December 11, 2011 4:43 am at 4:43 am #470429
Also, avoid the weekends at all costs. Unless you want to wait an hour to get into the parking lot and find a spot, and then have to wade through tight mobs of people inside the zoo.
