Detroit’s Zoo Boo returns for another year of “merry-not-scary” fun, Oct. 9-11, 16-18 and 23-25, 2015, when families and costumed kiddies can venture a half-mile in search of treats and tricksters. Rain or shine, the fun runs rampant.
Be sure your kids bring their own baskets to tote all their goodies and keep the candies safe at their sides while they gambol at the Zoo Boo Revue live stage show. Make your way through new acts that include magicians, street performers and impressive pumpkin carving demonstrations to reach the Haunted Reptile House. Meet the goblins and ghosts that have taken over the Holden Reptile Conservation Center upon returning home for the holiday. They’ve festively decorated just for you.
Don’t miss the ghastly Zombie Zone featuring ghostly games and the Creepy Craft, where the children can get in touch with their ghoulish sides.
Travel to another dimension at the Wild Adventure Zone’s 4-D Theater where “The Wizard of Oz” entertains for a limited time throughout October for an additional $5/person.
Dress up your munchkins as little gremlins and goblins for a spook-filled night of festive fun.
Tickets go on sale Oct. 1, but beware, this popular event has been known to sell out fast. Prices are $6/parking, $8/person in advance or $12/door if tickets are still available. Children ages 2 and under are free. The festivities run 5-8 p.m. and time slots begin every half hour.
