One of the exciting additions this year to Zoo Lights is the 90-foot LED Ferris Wheel of lights.
During the construction of the Ferris Wheel, the zoo created a time-lapse video - see in less than one minute above.
According to Memphis Zoo Communications specialist Laura Doty, the wheel has been around the U.S. and Canada before making its stop in Memphis.
Also new this year the opening weekend will feature Feature Weekend with the Avengers at the Memphis Zoo.
Captain America, Ironman, Thor, the Hulk and their nemesis, the Green Goblin, will appear at the Zoo. The Avengers will help WMC-TV's own Ron Childers light the Great Tree on the Zoo's front plaza.
