Zoo Boo

It's time to put on your costumes and head to the Children's Zoo for our annual Halloween bash! Zoo Boo will be October 13th, 14th, 20th, 21st, 27th, and 28th from 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.

You and your family will love making your way through the merry-not-so-scary Zoo exploring all of our spooktacular decorations! Meet some of our creepy, crawly animal friends, then take a ride on the Pirate Train. Even the Carousel horses get into costume! Stop by the many activity stations for a treat, a craft, or a game. Take pictures next to our hauntingly adorable photo opportunities, including many giant inflatables. Show off your creative costumes. Watch mad scientist Dr. Slime put on a mysterious, scientific show! But be careful—Dr. Slime might use your child in one of his crazy science experiments! See all of your animal friends get into the holiday spirit with festive, Halloween-themed enrichment. There's so much to do at Zoo Boo!

Ticket price includes Zoo admission, unlimited train and carousel rides, Dr. Slime shows, animal presentations, photo opportunities, and many crafts, activities, and games. Tickets are on presale for only $5 per person until October 12th. Starting October 13th, tickets are $6 per person. Join us for our WILD Halloween party at the Zoo!
