April 18, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A night for those who seek to find a way to leave the world behind.
Adventurers Beware: do not start unless you intend to finish.

Outside the jungle you must wait, until April ten plus eight.
Come in costume with your crew. Roundhouse, Bravestone, Parrish too.
Music, food, a real good time, there may even be a bit of wine.
The zoo at night is filled with wonder, missing out would be a blunder.

Among the primates all will play a game with some great giveaways.
If you wish to win the game, you must save Zoomanji and call out its name.

A special Wild Things expedition, all current members get free admission.
Not a member? Don’t be blue. There are tickets for non members too.
