Indianapolis Zoo Boo!

28 October, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 30 October, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Each year, ZooBoo provides all the fun festivities the season has to offer in a family-friendly event. Fall is already one of the best times to visit the Zoo with the animals out and active in mild temperatures. Add a Halloween twist full of decorations, photo opportunities and all your favorite ZooBoo activities for a day your family will love!

The Zoo opens at 9am, so come out early to enjoy a great fall day! Additionally, you might see some changes near the front of our Zoo due to the exciting start of our Bicentennial Pavilion project, so be sure to look at the official ZooBoo map to find all of your favorite activities.

The animals offer the perfect backdrop to this event. Enjoy animal chats throughout the celebration with even the elephant herd will get into the Halloween spirit with the pumpkin-gut splattering fun of the Elephant Pumpkin Smash presented bySam’s Club! Stroll through Spooktacular Square presented by Macy’s located in front of Kombo coaster for Pumpkin Bowling and goulish, goofy dancing to our DJ Monster Music!  The Spider Fun area presented by MetroPCS can be found in Flights of Fancy, for wild activities! And, be sure to wander through Plains to different treat stations along the ZooBoo Trail presented by Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.

We proudly provide only orangutan-friendly treats at all our ZooBoo treat stations. These items are palm-oil free, contain sustainable palm oil or are produced by a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil, which is working to make orangutan-friendly palm oil readily available. You can join our efforts to help organutans by becoming an informed consumer. Find a great orangutan-friendly Halloween candy list here, thanks to our friends at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

The little ones are encouraged to dress up in their favorite wild costumes! For the safety of all our guests, adults are not permitted to wear masks or makeup that would obscure the face. Masks are only allowed for children ages 12 and under. Those who need help bringing out their inner animal can visit one of the talented artists at a face-painting station. Children are encouraged to bring a re-usable goodie bag for a little trick-or-treat, too!
