JS Doesn't want to run the animate.css class


Just shoots to the left instead of performing the animation when the onclick function executes.

I see a few issues:

  • there is more than one element with the same ID "surprise" (ID's must be unique)
  • there is more than one nested element with the same "onclick" function
  • the "zoomOut" function wipes out all the original classes, which causes the centering to be lost (jump left)
  • with no "animation-duration", the animation will happen instantly
  • you may want to add "animation-fill-mode: forwards;" to keep the faded-out button from re-appearing
