Zoo Atlanta Invites You To A Slumber Party
Ben Stiller might’ve gotten to run around a museum with historical figures come to life, but that undeniable feeling of knowing it was all fake puts a damper on all museum sleepover dreams. In Atlanta, though, you can spend the night in a zoo with real live animals. It’s pretty much a dream come true—and both adults and children are invited. Atlanta’s Fulton County Zoo hosts a variety of NightCrawler overnight events, so that any group from six-year-old first graders to college kids and adults looking for a different kind of slumber party, can spend the night with the lions and tigers and bears (oh my.) Younger kids host overnight birthday parties that include zoo tours, sessions on biodiversity, a close-up look at the zoo’s giant pandas and a hike through the biomes of Georgia, while adult options include an epic after-hours scavenger hunt. Just don’t scare the monkeys. Visitor’s sleep in climate-controlled rooms and a continental breakfast is included, so although you might be sleeping among the animals, you most definitely won’t be sleeping like one. All overnights go from 6pm to 10:30am the next morning, any day from Monday to Saturday. A minimum group of ten is required, so grab some friends, pack a sleeping bag and get your wildlife on. It’s much easier than pitching a tent. Just don’t feed the animals.
