Bats, Bears And Bongos: Milwaukee's Boo At The Zoo

The Milwaukee County Zoo will be filled with a host of Halloween activities at Boo at the Zoo on October 19 & 20, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Here are some of the barely scary activities:

* Join our Halloween Haystack Maze, creatively constructed with haystacks and costumed characters! See how fast you can finish through the winding pathways!

* Enjoy our glowing and hand-carved pumpkins in the outdoor Pumpkin Patch! Then, continue on to the "Forest Trail at Wolf Woods Crossing" to see our illuminated pumpkins, as this display glows and glitters against a backdrop of a dancing light show!


* Have a howling good time and meet our popular (and friendly) Halloween character, Captain Jack Sparrow, as he entertains visitors.

* Do your best bat imitation and choose bat ears to wear, such as an insectivore or vampire species.

* Our majestic felines, including jaguars and cheetahs, will be your companions as you choose your favorite temporary tattoo to show-off!

* Go batty and learn more about these winged mammals. You'll also see that bats are a bit mysterious, and yet, play a very beneficial role in our natural world.

* An eerie adventure awaits as you hop aboard our Safari Train turned "Raven's Rail," for a spooky spin around the park, complete with pumpkin critters along the way!

* Enjoy a traditional fall treat, caramel apples! These satisfying treats are available for purchase courtesy of the American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK).

* Don't forget our favorite storybook characters, Harry and Fred, as they invite you to take part in yet another one of their spirited adventures!


Reduced admission rates apply on both Friday and Saturday evening. Adult admission is $6.50 juniors are $5, and children 2 and under are free. Parking is $6.


Be sure to mark your calendars now for the Zoo's upcoming trick-or-treating event, "Halloween Spooktacular," October 26 from 6 to 9 p.m. and October 27 from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Join us for this family friendly, safe trick-or-treating special event.
