Boo at the Zoo

22 Oct - 30 Oct 2016

Boo at the Zoo returns for 2016!

Get set for a host of spooky goings on at ZSL London Zoo this Halloween half term.

From 22 to 30 October, enjoy a spook-tacular range of Halloween -themed activities, animal demonstrations and hands-on crafts. Visitors can also enjoy special Halloween versions of the zoo's popular animal talks, feeds and demonstrations.

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

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.

Brave souls can listen to terrifying tales told by our Spooky Story tellers, or get to grips with gruesome artefacts in the Grimm Curiosity Shop. 

SPECIAL OFFER: Free pumpkin carving with every child ticket bought online*.

Simply add the free pumpkin offer to your basket before check out – maximum one per child ticket.

All other Boo at the Zoo activities are included in your ZSL London Zoo ticket.

Drop in throughout the day and meet some of the animals famous for haunting Halloween. There's enough to make everyone scream with delight!


*Price of pumpkin carving on the day £3, or £5 for two pumpkins. Offer only valid in conjunction with a paid for child ticket booked at or with ZSL by phone. One pumpkin per paid-for child ticket. Not available with free Under 3s tickets. See full T&Cs here.
