What do you do when you mix the holidays with one part light show mixed with interactive galore? You have LumiNature. This 12 zone adventure will light up your world allowing you to create the most magical experience you didn’t know you needed…until now!
I try to keep my blog life separate from my family life but last night I mirrored the two and it was the best mix of both worlds. I’m the biggest kid but having my actual kids and niece was the best thing I’ve done all week! So let’s dive into this exhibit. The Philadelphia Zoo has invested a lot of time and effort to make this brand new exhibit into a dream. FYI like I had to explain to my kids this is not the time to visit with animals. This is apart of but semi separate fun. So if you have tickets for the Zoo you will need to get separate tickets!
Without giving you all 12 zones I’m going to give you my top 4 zones and why I loved it!! Tickets to the exhibit is timed and can be purchased online here! Parking prices can be seen there as well.
Wonder of Slumber
This is at the very entrance of the Zoo! It’s airy illuminated flowers are extremely magical. Here is the pic of when it was still some daylight available:
Here is the picture of it in its nightly glory!
It’s visually stunning. Also keep in mind as you guide your way through the zones there are interactive things to touch and play. There are also actors who are dressed and of course in lights to make it a night to not forget. Have your camera or phone ready!!
My kids with the lion doing their best ROAR!
This is where the big show is. You get to meet Polaris the 35 foot polar bear who brings you into dancing and awe. The shows are timed at about every half an hour. You are going to want to be front row and center!
You can see a snippet of Polaris in action on my Instagram stories or in my highlight at More Philly! This show has some of the classic holiday and dance songs you will love to hear. It was nothing but smiles and awe from start to finish! Trust me you and your guests will absolutely love it!
This is one dazzling exhibit. It’s pink is so illuminating and I wanted to stay here for some time. Just take a look:
Hand crafted flamingos make up this beautiful tree! Even the walkway to it is stunning!
You can turn yourself into your own peacock! Peacocks are always known for their beautiful color and last night was no different!
There were a lot of extra things to see along our journey!
Since last night was the grand opening, the Philadelphia Zoo and Chase had a media and friends opening party!
Great food, hot chocolate bar, chocolate wine aka hot chocolate with wine, a regular bar and a great parting gift!
