Explore legends and history as you travel into the darkness with our storytellers. From man-eaters and monsters to gods and kings, learn how humans have viewed predators as much through story as science. Listen to the howls of wolves, the roars of lions, and other animals calling to one another in the night while you discover the lore that made these predators infamous.

Tour lasts approximately one hour and concludes with hot chocolate and cider by the fire pit.

Parental advisory: Legends & Lore features stories that deal with some adult themes including violence, sex, magic, and religion that may not be appropriate for younger audiences. This tour also takes place in the dark and participants are expected to follow strict rules of behavior and conduct. For these reasons, the Animal Park has limited the age of participants to 18 years and older.
