Petite princesses, pee-wee pirates and all of your favorite fantasy creatures will gather at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo when family-friendly Boo at the Zoo returns for its 24th year.
Boo at the Zoo is a seasonal safari with fun surprises at every corner. While enjoying different Halloween-themed activities, guests can visit their favorite Zoo animals after dark including grizzly bears, wolves, tigers, lions and elephants. Decorations, lights, music and special activities designed with your giggling goblins in mind make this a night your family will never forget. It's a safe, scare-free Halloween celebration appropriate for all ages.
The special eight-night event is set for 6-9 p.m. October 17-20 and 24-27. Tickets are available now at clemetzoo.com and at the Zoo's Box Office. General admission is $8, children younger than 2 are free and Zoo Members receive $1 off each admission. Your little monsters are sure to love this event, so get your tickets before they sell out!
Whether you prefer to dress as a cute critter, a fearless firefighter or a whimsical witch, everyone is encouraged to wear a costume (adults should refrain from wearing masks that completely cover their faces). After parking your broomsticks you're invited to tour the Not-So-Haunted Greenhouse, bust a move at the Monster Mash Dance Party and take a voyage with the Pirates of the Scare-ibbean on the Spooky Train Ride.
Keep your eyes open for magic shows, cellists, skeleton banjo players, giant bubble makers and animal encounters while you explore the Zoo.
With so much to see and do, you might have to come twice!
Guests are encouraged to bring flashlights to illuminate some of the darker areas of the Zoo.
