It’s nice and quiet to vistit during the weekdays, especially with daily activities such as spooky caves and a corn stalk maze,but weekends are so much more fun! There’s special weekend activities like a “Mad Science Fire and Ice Halloween Show,” “Musical Monster Mash-Up” puppet show, a costumes-encouraged dance party, boo-tiful Halloween themed crafts, strolling characters, pumpkin carving, and special animal feedings.
In a twist on a more traditional Halloween haunted house, the Zoo brings back its one-of-a-kind spooky cave experience in the Winnick Family Children’s Zoo, filled with shadows and projections of slithering snakes and crawling spiders, eerie sounds and other special effects. Other daily activities include a corn stalk maze filled with hair-raising Halloween scenes, among them a haunted barn, and a “freaky frame” photo op. Guests can get up close and personal to some of the Zoo’s scaly, slithery creatures at “Animals and You” encounters, with tarantulas, scorpions, snakes and more at 10: 45 and daily, plus an extra show at on weekends.
