An Insider's Guide to Christmas in the Wild

Nov 16, 2016

Get ready for an all-new twist to the holiday season as Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo introduces Christmas in the Wild. The Zoo is transforming into a world of winter wonder for 19 delightful nights with this brand-new event. From the sights of stunning lights, the seasonal smells of holiday treats, the excitement of festive entertainment and the magic of wildlife at night, Christmas in the Wild will offer guests of all ages a uniquely immersive holiday experience. Check out the tips below to make your night even more merry and bright!


  1. Skip the lines
  2. Buy your full price admission online prior to your visit to avoid long lines.
    BONUS: Your ticket also gets you in to the Zoo* until the end of 2017 (block out dates apply). So, “pay for a day” and fa-la-la at the Zoo for as long as you want!

  3. Come hungry and follow the scent of S’more Bacon
  4. This year the Zoo offers an array of holiday dishes, and all with a wild twist from S’more bacon to a Candy Cane Martini to peppermint mousse – there’s something for everyone. Our Holiday Dining Plans offer a variety of options throughout the night. Didn’t use all of your meals in the Plan in one night? No worries! You can use your Holiday Dining Plan on multiple visits throughout the event.

  5. Feast like Three Kings!
  6. If you're looking for a traditional Christmas dinner, Safari Lodge will be the place for you! You can choose between Roasted Turkey Breast or Honey Ham along with your choice of two sides AND a dessert! Please note, the Christmas Feast is included for redemption using the Holiday Dining Plan (requires two items to redeem).

  7. Ditch the sleigh! Uber, Lyft or taxi your way to the Zoo
  8. On Saturdays, giddy up and save time by having your driver drop you off at the Zoo School drop-off point, located at the entrance on North Blvd. Be on the lookout for Zoo staff assistance!

  9. Here comes Santa Claus, along with activities to entertain the family while you wait!
  10. As you wait to tell the “big guy in red” your Christmas wish list, there will be additional photo opportunities, festive entertainment, crepe station and drink options!

  11. On the 12th day of Christmas an elephant sent to me: trunk-painted art!
  12. No need to brave the hassle of holiday shopping, let the zoo be your one-stop shop! Give your loved ones the gift of the zoo. Make this holiday season – and 2017 – unforgettable for family & friends with the gift that keeps on giving: unlimited trips to the Zoo all year long. Other one-of-a-kind gifts include personalized ornaments, art painted by penguins and elephants, and much more!

  13. Tweets for days
  14. Stay ahead of the game with regular updates from our Twitter account. Make sure you follow us (@lowryparkzoo) to get the inside scoop on all that is happening during the event!

  15. The early bird gets the candy cane!
  16. That’s how that saying goes, right? Arrive to the Zoo early for optimal parking, less lines and minimal crowd. Feel like a true insider when you soak up all that Christmas in the Wild has to offer before anyone else!

Guna memenuhi permintaan, pengembang membangun real estate yang dibanderol dengan harga murah. Diterangkan selama ini Pintu Angzdoor industri real estate telah menunjukkan pertumbuhan negatif menyusul minimnya dana-dana biaya rendah baik untuk proyek-proyek pembangunan maupun kebutuhan modal kerja. Ditambah masih tingginya suku buku perbankan di sektor properti, membuat daya beli konsumen menjadi lemah. Di sisi lain Direktur Pintu duma Narayan Infrahight menyambut baik melihat industri real estate menapaki kembali hari-hari gemilangnya di tahun-tahun mendatang. “Proyek-proyek kita selama ini melambat dikarenakan naiknya biaya bunga dan biaya bahan baku  yang terus naik. Lembaga-lembaga dan bank-bank sangat pilih-pilih dalam membiayai para pengembang real estate. Semua hal ini berlangsung menjadi GSP (Harga Jual Kotor) yang lebih,” jelasnya.Akan tetapi dengan datangnya pembiayaan aqiqah sidoarjo pada suku bunga yang lebih rendah untuk pengembang real estate, para pengembang menilai akan dapat memberikan keuntungan bagi para pengguna akhir. Sehingga terjadi permintaan dan harga yang sesuai dan diharapkan dapat mendorong  tumbuhnya sektor properti.Menurut Fajar, terkadang untuk memuluskan sebuah kesepakatan bisnis aqiqah surabaya, nominal uang bukanlah segalanya. Diperlukan unsur lain seperti kepercayaan, kedekatan emosional, dan tentu saja hubungan antarmanusia. “Jadi bukan sekadar hubungan bisnis semata,” kata pria alumnus FMIPA Universitas Padjajaran dan master Teknologi Lingkungan, ITB, Bandung, ini.Persaingan bisnis properti Cuci Sofa terbilang ketat. Apalagi di daerah ini sudah tampak beberapa perumahan sejenis. Apa kiat Anda untuk berkembang?Jadi papa aku itu selalu nasehatin aku dengan agama, setiap malam atau setiap pagi sebelum berangkat syuting dan itu nangis. Ngedakwah nangis, jadi kayak sensitifnya papa itu nurun ke aku yang buat aku peka sama adegan, peka sama skenario makanya aku disuruh akting nangis itu gampang. Disuruh akting ini gampang, karena tingkat sensitifnya dan tingkat kepekeaan aku itu tinggi dan itu nurun dari papa gitu Betul. Persaingannya ketat. Tentang banyaknya perumahan cluster di kawasan ini, saya akui memang seperti itu. Bahkan banyak yang menyangsikan perumahan yang saya bangun, bakal laku. Namun justru itu, bila suatu daerah sudah ada pengembang (perumahan) yang lain, berarti potensi pasar di daerah tersebut cukup tinggi. Kita tak perlu lagi survey macam-macam. Dijamin, segmen pasar pasti ada. Buktinya, sekarang sudah 4 rumah yang terjual.Kita pun memberikan konsep Genteng Ngalur dengan kualitas terbaik. Terutama pada konstruksi dan bahan bangunan. Infrastruktur kita bangun lebih ramah lingkungan. Kalau di tempat lain jaringan listrik masih berada di atas bangunan, di sini, semua jaringan listrik berada di bawah tanah. Jadi tak merusak pemandangan. Air pembuangan pun kita bangun agar tak menimbulkan kerusakan lingkungan.Kami pun mendapat pasokan Genteng Ngalur dari para distributor besar. Mulai dari semen hingga besi. Harganya tentu lebih miring dibandingkan retailer. Dengan begitu, saya bisa menekan cost pembuatan rumah. Tapi kualitasnya tetap terjamin.
