The Zoo is not affiliated with the Spirit of Springfield or Bright Nights. While we are THRILLED to be collaborating with this amazing organization, we wanted to make sure our guests (and potential guests) understand that entrance into Bright Nights is a separate cost, charged by Spirit of Springfield, per vehicle, at the main entrance to the park. This is not a fee imposed or collected by The Zoo. Once inside Bright Nights, those who want to spend some time visiting the animals in The Zoo will pay $5 per adult (it's FREE for children!) at the front gate of The Zoo.
