Presented by Central Indiana Honda Dealers

From Halloween activities to amazing animals and pumpkins galore, ZooBoo presented by Central Indiana Honda Dealers is always the place to be on the weekends in October!

With mild temperatures, active animals and colorful foliage all around, fall is already a wonderful time to plan a Zoo visit. Add in all the extra Halloween activities for an unforgettable family experience.

Pumpkin Town

The Bicentennial Pavilion is home to a whimsical village with adorable cats and fancy rats, a friendly witch and a crafty pumpkin school where fun is in session! Thrills and fun are hiding around every corner inside the Candy Corn Factory Mirror Maze. Guests can also visit not-so-scary creatures in Jack’s Barn presented by State Farm or the cats being fostered in Bewitching Bites by our friendly witch. Through the Zoo’s partnership with the Humane Society of Indianapolis, guests can learn about adopting these adorable animals after Halloween. And, don’t forget to explore the friendly witch’s carnivorous plant, hat and magic wand collections! Little witches and goblins can make a craft at the Pumpkin School. Plus, the dance party is always going with Halloween hits from Patch Radio and the fall favorite, Pumpkin Bowling!

Zoo Animals

The animals offer the perfect backdrop for ZooBoo’s family-friendly fun!

Animals are typically quite active during the fall with mild temperatures. Watch several of the animals enjoying Halloween-themed enrichment and extra animal chats throughout the event. View the ZooBoo map for the full schedule.

Even the elephant herd will be getting into the Halloween spirit with the pumpkin-splattering fun of the Elephant Pumpkin Smash presented by Sam’s Club!
