Boo at the Zoo returns for Halloween half term

Boo at the Zoo - ZSL London Zoo

Boo at the Zoo is coming to ZSL London Zoo promising a week of frightful fun this October half term, enchanting little monsters with an array of fang-tastic activities from Saturday 21 October to Sunday 31 October 2017.

New for 2017, visitors can embark on an Extinction Trail, with avid explorers tasked with finding six extinct species hidden around the Zoo, to be in with a chance of winning a prize, or join a Ghost Tour of ZSL London Zoo, which will have the whole family howling with delight.

Creative critters can head to the Bat Cave to make mysterious masks or carve out creepy pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch.

Brave souls can attend Halloween Story Telling to listen to terrifying tales told by our spooky storytellers and find out how nature bites back at Halloween-themed animal talks.

Enrol little devils in the Zoo’s Ghoul School, where they can dress up as their favourite Halloween character, learn how to ‘cast a spell’ and even try their hand at mummy-wrapping, before showing off their devilish disco moves at the Pumpkin Party.

Those with a flair for creepy creativity can take part in Spooky Arts and Crafts as well as put on an extra brave face for truly hairy encounters with some of the animals famous for haunting Halloween, including rats and owls.

The Halloween week will run from Saturday 21 October to Tuesday 31 October with Boo at the Zoo activities taking place between 11:00am – 3:30pm.
