From the Central Florida Zoo and Botanical Gardens
Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls of all kinds will gear up to celebrate Halloween safely at the fan-favorite Zoo Boo Bash, presented by Orlando Health.
This year, the event will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on October 17-18 and October 24-25.
Zoo Boo Bash is the perfect way for children and families to safely show off those Halloween costumes and trick-or-treat, while enjoying the fun of the Zoo.
The Zoo will have plenty of not-so-scary decorations and activities, including trick-or-treat stations in a designated area to ensure social distancing.
Costumes are encouraged for all guests and face masks or coverings are required for guests over the age of 13—an easy requirement for many costumes!
All activities are included with Zoo admission; annual pass holders should note this is a blackout date. Special discounted event admission for annual pass holders will be $5 per individual named on their valid annual pass card.
For the health and safety of our guests, staff, and animals, and to comply with capacity limits, ALL* visitors must have a dated and timed ticket when visiting the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens and to participate in trick-or-treating during Zoo Boo Bash, presented by Orlando Health.
