ZooBoo 2020

It's about to get spoooky at the Eerie Zoo! 

It's time for ZooBOO - one of the largest kid-friendly Halloween events in the tri-state area! So put on your costume and get ready to experience the Zoo "Halloween style"!

This year's ZooBOO will continue to be "scary, but not too scary" with lots of fun for the whole family! In an effort to stay safe and limit contact, we will be introducing the ZooBOO Spooky Scavenger Hunt! All children 12 years and under will be able to participate with their family in a grand Halloween adventure around the zoo! At the end, each child will receive a pre-packed bag of goodies to take home and have the chance to enter to win a ZooBOO Gift Basket! Don't worry, it's not all different! You will still get to meet the troll who guards the Children's Zoo Bridge, have a chat with the Talking Pumpkin, and ride the Safariland Express!

Remember, all tickets MUST be purchased in advance online and masks will be required. -Ticket link coming soon-
