Our zoo has something called Zoolight Safari. Basically, around Christmas, they decorate the zoo with Christmas lights and blow-up Santas, trains and snowmen. All the animals are put away except for those in the petting zoo section.
Sam has decided he is petrified of the blow-up things. Peh-treh-fied. So, we had a great time at the Zoolight Safari including avoiding any and all vicious, life-threatening blow-up Santas and snowmen.
