Sleep next to the watery world of sharks in this unique overnight program. You will spend the night with a Zoo naturalist learning about sharks and other ocean life in the wild as well as those here at the Minnesota Zoo. Go behind-the-scenes in two areas of the Zoo. Everyone will sleep in Discovery Bay in our underwater viewing area!
Programs begin on select Fridays at 6:30 p.m. and conclude the next morning at 9:00 a.m. Maximum group size is 60 (students and chaperones). Minimum group size is 10 people. We need a minimum of 15 for the overnight to take place.
When you book your overnight your group may be combined with other groups of a different gender or age. Please let us know if you need special sleeping arrangements and we will do our best to accommodate your group. If you would like the overnight to be exclusive for just your group - you must register a minimum of 45 people and let us know you want it to be exclusive to your group.
Fees: $47/person (no more than one adult per four youth). Includes the program, evening snack, breakfast, a Minnesota Zoo patch (for Scout groups) and a program t-shirt. After the conclusion of the program, participants are welcome to enjoy the rest of the day at the Minnesota Zoo.
