One of the most fun holiday events in the Springs is Electric Safari at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Every year, the beautiful zoo located on the side of Cheyenne Mountain decorates it's exhibits and walkways with animal and Christmas themed lights.
The experience happens when the sun is down making the lights even more vibrant.
Electric Safari will stay open for the majority of nights through December; even Christmas evening.
There are fun activities during the safari including special animal shows and keeper talks. Some animal exhibits are open including the giraffes.
Children are especially tickled to feed the giraffes crackers which is an option every year during Electric Safari. The animal shows and keeper talks vary nightly, so check out the schedule at the cheyenne mountain zoo website to find which nights have the most exciting shows. Santa Clause will also be joining the adventure throughout most of December.
