Food truck favorites, including Grilled Cheese Truck, Coolhaus, Komodo Truck, and Crepe'n Around, will also be on hand, along with full bar service. Roaring Nights offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience nature in a completely new way, with live animal encounters and pop-up zookeeper talks throughout the evening.
