The Memphis Zoo knows how to welcome the holiday season! It’s time for Zoo Skating, plus Zoo Lights! Ice up your skates and stop by the only tented, outdoor ice skating rink in town! While you’re there,  enjoy a stroll through the #1 rated Zoo in the U.S., taking in the sights and sounds of wintertime at the seasonal Suntrust Zoo Lights display.

There's so much to see and do, visitors of all ages will find something to enjoy like the 200-ft-long tunnel of light, Santa visits, a 90-FT LED ferris wheel, singing Christmas trees, camel rides, the North Pole Express Train, the China Carousel and don’t forget to catch a Magic Mr. Nick Illusion Show for a light-hearted and magical experience.

Memphis Zoo on Ice brings a holiday vibe to the already popular zoo, with ice skating daily from 9:30 - 4:30 and on the evenings when Zoo Lights is on from 5:30-9:30. Snacks, holiday treats and warm beverages available too.

The Zoo is closed Christmas Day, but the SunTrust Zoo Lights will open at 5:30 p.m.
Tickets: $6/members; $8/nonmembers. Please note that Zoo Lights is a separate event and requires a separate ticket.

Don’t miss out on a Mid-South tradition that not only brightens up the season, but is also a lot of fun. Make a night of it and build holiday memories at these unforgettable celebrations of light and holiday spirit.
