Join the Zoo for some “spook”tacularly scary fun at the 28th Annual Halloween event, ZOO BOO at YOUR San Antonio Zoo.

Zoo Boo is an exciting, safe, and non-scary Halloween event for families with children 12 years of age or younger, held on the grounds of the San Antonio Zoo. Guests are encouraged to wear non-scary costumes.

Activities include trick-or-treating, face painting, entertainment, and games. Children can participate in the costume contest. *All games are 50 cents to play.

Helpful Zoo Boo Tips:

  • Purchase your Zoo Boo tickets in advance. All pre-paid ticket holders will enter through the Education Center. Make sure to look for directional signs.
  • Parking can be a hassle, so try car pooling if possible. Parking is available but limited. You can also park under the expressway off Tuleta Drive.
  • Remember to bring your own trick-or-treat bags.
  • Game tickets are available for purchase inside Zoo Boo for 25 cents a piece. All games are 2 tickets to play.

REMEMBER TO BAG IT! Trick or treat at Zoo Boo using reusable buckets, canvas bags or pillowcases.
