for a safe, family-friendly place to take the munchkins this
fall? Simply follow the Yellow Brick Road straight to the
for ZooBoo presented by the
Dealers. This event features all the fun of the
holiday season, but in a very family-friendly setting. This
year’s theme is “The Wonderful World of ZooBoo,” which puts a
Zoo spin on Frank Baum’s beloved children’s novel “The Wonderful
World of Oz.”
From 2 to 7pm for nine enchanted days — Oct. 11-13, 18-20, and 25-27 —
you can enjoy decorations and characters pulled straight from the pages of
Baum’s book along with all your favorite ZooBoo activities.
The animals offer the perfect backdrop to this event. Enjoy
Halloween-themed dolphin shows and animal chats, and the animals will stay
out late to take advantage of the cooler weather and let you enjoy the Zoo
until the sun sets. Even the elephant herd will get into the Halloween
spirit with the pumpkin-gut splattering fun of the Elephant Pumpkin Smash.
Costumes are encouraged and children can bring a bag to trick-or-treat at
five stations in the Plains area.
We'll turn off the water and convert the
Kroger Splash Park into an obstacle course that your
little munchkins will love! Plus you won’t want to miss the Zoo’s rides,
which have been tricked out for Halloween. The
White River Junction Train presented by Marathon and
4-D Theater presented by YP will both receive a “The
Wizard of Oz” theme. Plus, the
Roller Ghoster presented by
Outback Steakhouse and
Round-Go-Merry — the Zoo’s carousel ride in reverse —
are sure to give you a thrill! Then, with a few heel clicks of your ruby red
slippers, finish your spook-tacular visit with fun photo opportunities and
some Ghoulish Goodies!
