Zoo Boo at the Detroit Zoo in Royal Oak
A family-friendly trick-or-treat trail and other fun activities take over the zoo for the Halloween season, Oct. 12-28, 2012
Featuring a "merry not scary" decorated half-mile trick-or-treat trail through the front of the Detroit Zoo, the Zoo Boo, which takes place weekends Oct. 12-28, 2012 is a great activity for families looking for a kid-friendly Halloween event.
There will be live entertainment in the Zoo Boo Review Tent and assorted games and activities for kids in the Ghouly Games Tent and the Zombie Zone. The reptile house will also be made over into a haunted walk-through full of goblins and monsters – tame enough for little kids to enjoy.
For more fun check out the limited engagement showing of the Wizard of Oz 4-D experience, where you'll join Dorothy and her friends on their way to the Emerald City. Mumble's Wild Ride will also be showing on the Wild Adventure Ride, a thrill ride that tilts, shakes and "moves" viewers through a virtual adventure.
Zoo Boo will be held the evenings of Oct. 12-14, 19-21 and 26-28 with varied time slots from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. – rain or shine. On Saturday, Oct. 27, Zoo Boo will offer limited admission for time slots of 5 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Those tickets must be purchased in advance. All tickets can be purchased at Booth One at the Detroit Zoo or online. Advance purchase is recommended.
Tickets are $7 per person for ages two and up. Tickets for the Wizard of Oz and Mumble's Wild Ride are an additional $5 per person or $7 for a bundle pack for both.
