For two scary nights of fun on 23 and 24 October every year, the Phoenix Zoo combines the jitters of Boo at the Zoo and Howl-O-Ween in one big event that will send chills down your spine. This is a night at the zoo like no other. Between mascot parades, camel rides, scare’ousel, and carnival games, kids of all ages will have more reasons to scream and be frightened on this most hallowed of evenings. Even adults will find something to put them in a cold sweat in the zoo.
Boo at the Zoo – Phoenix Zoo Halloween
Boo at the Zoo is usually held at Harmony Farms at the zoo all week, but this year its activities will be incorporated in the Howl-O-Ween Phoenix Zoo annual event to give young kids and older children addition activities to enjoy. From 4-D theater pieces such as the ‘Haunted Lighthouse 4-D’ to meeting costume characters like Arizona Ghostbusters, a Star Wars hero and princesses, the kids will have a fabulous time getting scared and thrilled at the same time. Every evening there will be a magic show at the Neely Center where magicians perform card tricks and disappearing acts.
Creepy for the Whole Family
But it’s not just kids who get all the fun at the zoo. Older children and adults will have their share as well. Who can resist the involuntary shiver seeing the headless horseman riding around on a night like this? And if that doesn’t scare you and you feel bold enough then you should try the Holidays of Horror Haunts. It’s a freak show based on the time of year. So don’t leave your courage at the gate because you’ll need every ounce of bravery you can muster for this one.
