Exciting New Immersive Displays Await You at Zoo Lights Presented by Your Hometown Toyota Stores!

Zoo Lights presented by Your Hometown Toyota Stores is in full swing with new experiences we've created just for you! Tag along with DZTV Host Carlie McGuire as she shows you around Storytime with Mrs. Claus, the Festival of Lanterns and our new 4D Theater. More details:

Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas 4D:

Kids of all ages will love Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas 4D in our brand new 4D Theater located near Toyota Elephant Passage. Watch with 3D glasses to see if a handful of prehistoric misfits can really save the holiday, while you feel in-theater special effects. This 4D movie experience requires a separate ticket purchase available at the 4D Theater ticket kiosk.

Festival of Lanterns:

An eye-popping kaleidoscope of Asian-themed lanterns and light sculptures will adorn Toyota Elephant Passage’s pagodas and bridges and pathways.

Santa and Mrs. Claus Workshop Show:

No visit to Zoo Lights is complete without a visit to Santa and Mrs. Claus. This year Mrs. Claus will take the spotlight as she spins a captivating magical tale that brings the holiday season to life, while you get cozy with s’mores or a signature drink like a Mrs. Claus Cookie-Cream Dream.
