Plan Your Visit
A spell-tacular experience awaits you with brand new thrills and frightening favourites!
Visitors to our spooky spectacle will travel along a loop within the Zoo encountering dazzling displays and curious characters along the way.
You'll witness jaw-dropping performances and expect to encounter a coven of witches, a treacherous troll, spooky spiders den, ghoulish ghosts, picture-perfect pumpkin patch, and much more. Get your groove on at our skelly dance party or visit the large tent near the end of the loop to enjoy live music!
Boo at the Zoo is a family-friendly event. The Zoo will be transformed into a spooky (but not too spooky) Halloween extravaganza for you to explore. While some displays may be frightening or surprising for younger children, there are no jump scares at Boo at the Zoo.
