El Paso Zoo to Host Sleepovers with Rare, Endangered Animals and Rare Pokémon!

The El Paso Zoo is hosting two Pokémon sleepovers on August 12 and August 19 to give Poké Masters a chance to catch the rare Pokémon that only come to the Zoo after dark.

The El Paso Zoo is home to 17 Pokéstops and a gym, which players will have access to all night. Pokéstops are places in the Pokémon Go game that allow players to collect items, such as eggs and Poké Balls, which are necessary to catch Pokémon. Gyms are where players train and battle with their characters.

“This is a fun way to catch rare Pokémon, and discover even more rare endangered species,” said Education Specialist Stephanie Gonzalez. “We are excited to be able to have an interactive opportunity to host a special Zoo Adventure Program with a themed twist.”

The Zoo will drop lures throughout the night and have special themed animal encounters with real animals that resemble some favorite Pokémon characters. Guests will also get to make their own Poké Balls for the Zoo animals and watch as the animals “catch” some enrichment fun.

This special sleepover includes a box dinner, continental breakfast, two behind the scenes tours, special animal encounters, access to rare Pokémon and all the lures, and more. The sleepover is $57 for adults and $53 for children under age 13.

One adult must accompany every five guests under age 17. Additionally, the sleepover includes a Zoo admission ticket so the sleepover guest may come back and catch the day Pokémon, too!

The deadline to sign up for the August 12 sleepover is Monday, August 1. The deadline to sign up for theAugust 19 sleepover is Friday, August 5.

Only 25 spots are available for each sleepover.
