What ghosts and goblins are ready for nine nights of Spooktacular Family Fun at the Hattiesburg Zoo? The annual Zoo Boo Halloween Party will take place nightly from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. beginning Friday, October 21 and running through Sunday, October 30th. Tickets are available for all ages 2 and older at a cost of $13 in advance, and $15 at the gate; however, there will be a nightly ticket capacity limit and ticket availability is not guaranteed at the gate. Tickets can be purchased at the Hattiesburg Zoo website or through this link https://hattiesburgzoo.systems9.com/module/_zoo/events.html. There is no admission fee for children under the age of 2, and annual passes do not apply for Zoo Boo.
The Spook-tacular Express and Carou-Spell will be running all night for our ghoulish guests to enjoy, and rides are included in the admission price. The Creepy Cantina and Goblin Grill will be open and offering regular menu items with some Spooky Specials, and Devilish Drinks that guests of every age will enjoy.
The Haunted High-Ropes Adventure Course will be open each night of Zoo Boo. Sky-Trail tickets cost $10 and Sky-Tykes tickets cost $5 and can be purchased by the course upon arrival. Eerie Animal Shows and Alarming Animal Encounters will take place multiple times each evening, and the Petrifying Petting Zoo and Wicked Wallaby Walkabout will be open for guests throughout the evening. Our little ghosts and goblins can gobble on roasted marshmallows at Crawly Camp Capybara.
The Monster Mash Dance Party will be spinning the Spookiest of Songs for children and adults to Boo-gie Down to. Chilling Cabanas, offering a front-row view of the Monster Mash Dance Party, can be rented on a first-come-first-served basis each evening of Zoo Boo for $75.
Children are encouraged to wear costumes, and adults are welcome to join in the fun. We do ask that adults not wear masks unless it is for health reasons, with the mask only covering the nose and mouth. Any mask designed to prevent the spread of Covid-19 is welcomed for the use of patrons. Zoo Boo is not a trick-or-treating event.
All ticket sales are final. Zoo Boo is a rain or shine event so please be prepared for the weather the day of your visit. Only in the case of severe weather will Zoo management cancel an evening of ZooBoo. If that happens, ticket holders will be able to receive a refund or move tickets to another night.
