I totally had Jumanji on VHS growing up, right next to Space Jam and The Lion King. So this event is definitely exciting to me! To wrap up the summer, there's a Calgary Zoo after hours, adults only event that will feature an epic Jumanji-themed party complete with a screening of the original movie. Anyone who loves 90s nostalgia, Robin Williams and animals will not want to miss this adults-only after-hours event!
Your ticket includes admission to the Calgary Zoo plus the movie screening and a BBQ dinner. You can pick up your wristband after 4 PM. That means you can check out the zoo before the event starts at 6 PM!
There will be a Jumanji-themed self-guided tour, plus lawn games and cash bars serving drinks and ice cream—major elements for an epic summer evening!
There's also going to be a BBQ, including burgers, veggie options, potato salad, coleslaw and lemonade. They'll start the screening of the original Jumanji movie at 8:30 PM, so it should run until shortly after 10 PM.
Like at all outdoor summer events, make sure to bring some layers so that you're not chilly once the sun goes down.
There's no better venue to watch the original Jumanji movie. Imagine getting to see the animals in real life at the zoo and then seeing them on screen!
