THIS YEAR AT BOO AT THE ZOO:

Enchanted Swamp

Formerly known as the Boo Den, the Enchanted Swamp is a new attraction to Boo at the Zoo. Located throughout our Otter Cabin and adjacent boardwalks, guests can let their imaginations run wild as they take in the magically decorated scenery.

Hay Maze

Wander through our merry, not scary hay maze! $1 per person, and proceeds benefit your Zoo! Presented by McDonald's.

Spooky Train Ride

Our Cypress Bayou Railroad is a true Zoo favorite, especially during Boo at the Zoo. Hop the train and travel through Cypress Bayou while spotting some classic Halloween characters along the way. Make sure you keep your eyes peeled around Boudreaux’s Bait Shop! 

EdZooCation Station

Our Wildlife Safari Amphitheatre is transformed for this event into a hands-on animal extravaganza! Don't miss our shows at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Between shows we'll have our volunteers and Zoo Educators available for games and more.
