  • Sensory-Friendly tips: Every night of Zoo Lights is sensory inclusive and offers an opportunity for the neurodiverse community to experience Houston’s favorite holiday tradition,…, we have eliminated strobe and intensely flashing lights, and created designated quiet zones. There are certain Zoo Lights dates where we anticipate lower crowds. Those dates are Nov 27-29, Dec 4-5, and Dec 11-13.
