The zoo has their regular animal exhibits open for observation, but there are additional family-friendly activities happening all wekened long. Get spooked on a haunted hay ride, navigate through a corn maze, watch The Pumpkin Smasher do its work, build a scarecrow, and listen to some zookeepers chat about their favorite spooky animals, including scorpions, spiders, and large snakes!

Best of all, it’s not a Halloween event without a little candy! The zoo has treat stations set up around the zoo so your family can satisfy your sweet tooth cravings as you take in all the sights and sounds of the zoo!
