The Detroit Zoo’s annual “merry-not-scary” Zoo Boo celebration, presented by Michigan Education Savings Program, features a festively decorated half-mile trick-or-treat trail through the front of the Zoo.
Live, friendly entertainment awaits your costume-clad little ones at the Zoo Boo Revue, and they will be delighted to try their luck at the Ghouly Games tent sponsored by Blue Care Network.
Be sure to stop by the Haunted Reptile House and visit the ghosts and goblins that have made the Holden Reptile Conservation Center their home for the holiday season. And don’t miss the Zombie Zone, sponsored by Tim Hortons Cafe and Bake Shop, featuring ghostly games and spooky activities sure to send a chill up your spine!
Dare to take a ride on the wild side at the Wild Adventure Zone’s 4D Theater featuring “The Wizard of Oz,” a limited time engagement only in October, or on the Simulator Ride featuring “Happy Feet: Mumble’s Wild Ride” for an additional $5 per person, per ride, or $7 for both! It’s a fang-tastic deal sure to give you goose bumps!
Be sure to take a thrilling whirl on the Carousel (additional $2 per person) and stop by the bone-chilling Arctic Café so your goblins can gobble up some Halloween goodies.
Tickets for the rides may be purchased online or at Guest Relations at the front of the Zoo in advance or on the night of the event.
Zoo Boo will be held on the evenings of October 11-13, October 18-20 and October 25-27, rain or shine. Zoo Boo is held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Fridays and 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets may sell out, so advance ticket purchase is encouraged!
