This October, join the Bronx Zoo for one of New York's favorite Halloween traditions, Boo at the Zoo, October 10-12, 17-18, 24-25 and Oct. 31-Nov. 1. Bring your family and friends to enjoy all of the spooky fun, including the first-ever Haunted Safari Adventure. Embark on an incredible journey as you walk, crawl and slide through huge fantastical environments, designed to delight.  Take your family on a wondrous adventure through a bat cave, the belly of a snake, a rainforest swamp and much more, as you are challenged to find the whereabouts of a lost species.

There's a lot more fun to be had at this spook-tastic event! Go batty for special wildlife magic performances and pumpkin carving demonstrations. Don't miss live musical performances with Annie and the Natural Wonderband, and sing along to some of your favorite animal-inspired tunes. Let yourself get lost at the Bronx Zoo's Halloween Hay Maze, or take a spin on an eerie hay ride through Creepy Hollows. Learn about amazing bats as our fabulous Wildlife Theater Players perform of It's a Wonderful Niche. You can also join Scrap Kins and turn trash into treasure as you create an animal mask from recycled materials. Best of all, come visit with our bats, cats, reptiles and creepiest critters!

Kids in wildlife costumes get in free to enjoy this hauntingly good time! Visit bronxzoo.com/boo for full details and restrictions.
