About Halloween Hoots

FRIDAY 27 OCTOBER – TUESDAY 31 OCTOBER

Meeting at our members gate, you’ll head up to our ZOOpernatural animal antics arena to experience the thrill of swooping birds, learn about the behaviours of mystical residents and even have the chance to get involved yourself! With a quick toasting marshmallow pit stop, our rangers will then guide you through the zoo to meet many of our weird and wonderful creep-uscular creatures and sharing plenty of chilling facts along the way.

Suitable for itty-bitty goblins and ghouls, as well as older kids!

Entry to the event is 5pm at the members gate, tickets must be booked in advance.
5pm – 7pm
