After a two-year break, it’s time to get out your silly family costumes because Boo at the Zoo is BACK…with twice as many days for twice as much fun. This year we’ve added three extra days of “spell-a-bration” so there’s plenty of time to get into the Halloween spirit as the Zoo transforms for six nights of safe, traffic-free trick-­or-treating and “monster-ous” thrills and chills. Tasty treats and booo-zy adult beverages are available for purchase. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Adults may not wear full face masks or have full face painted. Realistic weapons not allowed.


Cost: $22.95/adult, $19.95/adult for SB Zoo Members; $17.95/child, $14.95/child for SB Zoo Members. Includes event entry, trick-or-treating, Zoo Train ride, mad science experiments, dance party, creepy-crawly animal encounters, and bounce houses. Get tickets online.

We strive to host inclusive, accessible events that enable all individuals to engage and participate fully. To request accommodations or for inquiries about accessibility, please email the accessibility team
