The Columbus Zoo will host a sensory-friendly night from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 16. Attendance is free for members and $16.99 for general admission.
Tickets are limited for the event, so the crowds will be smaller.
- Holiday music will be turned off for the evening throughout the park.
- Strobing, flashing and blinking light effects will be dramatically reduced.
- Sensory kits with noise-canceling headphones, sunglasses and fidget devices will be available at guest relations for a $10 refundable deposit.
- A limited number of indoor areas will be open to guests.
- Santa will not make an appearance, but a special sensory-friendly Santa experience will be offered in December. Reservations will open for that event soon.
