At John Ball Zoo, a tale of illuminating connections between wildlife and wild places is ready to be told! The illuminating tale of how we are all connected to each other, to the land, the water, the air, the trees, and all animals big and small with the power to make a positive change in our world. You are invited to take a journey through IllumiZoo – A Glenlore Tale at John Ball Zoo.

IllumiZoo – a Glenlore Tale is a one-mile long, outdoor nighttime journey through John Ball Zoo. This magical tale told through a display of colors and lights will wind through the lower and upper realms of the Zoo and is the combined imaginations of Bluewater Technologies of Southfield, Michigan, and John Ball Zoo.

IllumiZoo – a Glenlore Tale will take about 45-60 minutes to walk, depending on your pace. Discover adorable, and vibrant lighted creatures that come alive at night to help tell the tale and experience a dazzling show of lights and sounds that are sure to captivate your imagination. Children of all ages will enjoy this attraction, as long as it isn’t past your bedtime.

The magical light show follows many of the same pathways that guests walk during the daytime at John Ball Zoo so it is wheelchair as well as stroller friendly. Masks are required of guests ages 5 and older who cannot maintain a 6’ distance between other guests.

Due to the safety and special needs of the animals, none will be out at this time. IllumiZoo - a Glenlore Tale is an illuminated trail through the Zoo that features extravagant light installations for a magical nighttime experience this Fall.
