ZooBoo at the Indianapolis Zoo

A Family Fun Experience for the Whole Family!

Is regular October too humdrum, but haunted houses too creepy-crawly? Come to the Zoo for super-duper Halloween activities, amazing animals and pumpkins galore! ZooBoo is always a fun family experience for itty-bitty ghouls and goblins, as well as the bigger kids. October weather means active animals, colorful foliage and a new season to explore. Combine that with engaging, hands-free activities, spooktacular costumes, and trick-or-treating — plus, the chance to boogie-woogie to a live DJ — and you’ve got an unforgettable family tradition. 

ZooBoo is free for Zoo members and included with regular admission.

Pumpkin Town

The Bicentennial Pavilion is home to a whimsical village with adorable cats, fancy rats and Mayor Jack who keeps guests on their toes with his boo-worthy jokes! One of our most popular areas, we’ll be monitoring attendance in this area to ensure guests have space for social distancing. Professor Pumpkin leads mystifying science demonstrations for little witches and wizards at Pumpkin School. Guests can also visit not-so-scary creatures in Jack’s Barn or the cats being fostered in Bewitching Bites.

Explore ZooBoo after dark with extended dates, now including Wednesdays.
