This holiday season for the very first time, the Los Angeles Zoo has changed stripes from a daytime adventure to a dazzling winter wonderland known as L.A. ZOO LIGHTS, which captivates guests as it transforms the Zoo’s enchanting environment into a series of awe-inspiring animal escapades rendered in led lights, lasers, 3D projections, spectacular sets and interactive displays. Open through Sunday, January 4, 2015, 6 to 10 pm, this magical new experience is destined to become a wondrous, “don’t-miss” holiday tradition. Special effects include 3-D holiday/animal-themed animations, freeway-driving “animals,” a group of giant “bullfrogs” made from 3,750 water bottles lit from within, giant floating snowflakes, glittering light tunnels, animal cutouts, icicle lights and much more.
