Pokémon Go Safari Zone Night says
Attention, Pokémon trainers! Professor Willow and his colleagues at the Institute for Conservation Medicine would like to invite you to the Saint Louis Zoo on Friday, August 19 from 6 – 9 p.m.* Sit back and relax around lured stops, and enjoy your favorite 90s hits from this week’s Jungle Boogie band, The Throwbacks.**

*Exhibits open until 7 p.m.
** The band will play until 8 p.m.

While at the Zoo, get your face painted with a Pokémon theme. You can also support your gym on a Valor, Mystic or Instinct Tour and secure your road to victory by visiting almost every Pokéstop in the Zoo (there are over 50!), all while learning about conservation. Be sure to share the fun with #pokéstlzoo

Team Tours start at 7:15 p.m., so lace up your running shoes, get your incense and incubators ready, and join the Zoo’s Education staff on a trip through the Zoo’s very own Safari Zone:

Team Valor Moltrain Tour- $5 per person (Take a special trip on our Zooline Railroad where you will get to incubate eggs!)
Team Mystic Tour/Team Instinct Tour - $4 per person per tour
Two Tours (any combination) - $8 per person
All Three Tours - $10 per person

Please Note: Tours are open to all. You do not need to be on Team Valor to ride the train. Our tours are themed to represent each of the three teams.

Timed tickets will go on sale at 6:00 P.M,and are available at the Welcome Desks, Discovery Cove Train Station, and the Stingrays at Caribbean Cove ticket booth. Last walking tours will depart at 8:40 p.m. , the final train tour will depart at 8:30 p.m.

*Member Anywhere Passes and Adventure Passes do not apply.

Free Parking on Zoo lots after 6 p.m.

One final note, Trainers: the Zoo is pleased to be a hot spot for Pokémon Go. However, to all those enthusiasts who are hunting Pokémon, please remember to stay in public areas of the Zoo and to be respectful of the other Zoo visitors and the animals. Please do not interfere with other visitors' experiences. Please stay safe and watch out for the safety of others by paying attention to where you are stepping as you search for animalian creatures.

Proceeds from this event benefit the Saint Louis Zoo’s WildCare Institute. Stop by the Institute for Conservation Medicine’s WildCare table near Lakeside Crossing to charge up your phone and find out how Pokémon GO is similar to real fieldwork underway in Forest Park and across the globe!
