Get into the “spirit” of the season during Spooky Sleepover at the Zoo, and meet animals that wear their colorful costumes all year-round. Your ghostly camp director, Dr. Zoolittle, and his ghoulish experts will greet you at check-in with a slithery animal friend.
Make your own personalized treat bag to collect goodies throughout the evening, and take an exclusive bus tour that will introduce you to some scary and strange animals before delivering you to “haunted” Camp Timbuktu, where you and your child can settle down in your tent.
After dinner at Camp, kids will “trick or treat” while meeting and touching some spooky animals—if you dare! Back at camp, kids can participate in a costume parade (be sure to bring your costumes!) with prizes and be entertained by Dr. Zoolittle’s ghost stories and snacks around the campfire. Those campers still awake can take an optional night prowl through the Zoo.
You’ll wake up to a delicious buffet breakfast at Sabertooth Grill, overlooking Elephant Odyssey, and then watch some of our animals get their Halloween treats. Head home with a souvenir gift and lots of happy memories.
Dates: Saturdays, October 19 and 26 from 4 p.m.–9 a.m.
Cost: $139 per adult, $119 per child (ages 4–11), plus Zoo admission for nonmembers.
