The spookiest time of the year is upon us and ZooBoo is finally here! On select dates from September 27th-October 31st, venture to the Indianapolis Zoo for a night of frightful activities, special characters, spooktacular entertainment and food that’s so good, it’s scary! From ‘Skelly Wings’ to ‘Boo-reos’, there’s plenty of things to sink your teeth into this year! Here is a list of eats and treats you must try at this year’s ZooBoo… if you dare!

We can’t forget the petrifying potions and spooky spirits we have at ZooBoo! Returning this year are Aunty Guzzle’s Potions, choose between a fruit punch or sour apple potions. If you’re looking for a more chilling drink, then the skull yard cup is just for you! Assorted flavors of ICEE served in a skull shaped yard cup.

For ghouls 21-and-over, we have two new spooky spirits! Try the Scary Cherry Mule, a monstrous mixture of Hotel Tango Bourbon and Cherry Liqueur topped with mule mixer. Or try the Myotis Martini, a batty cocktail of Hotel Tango Vodka and Orangecello topped with Lemonade.

You can find all these sweet and savory treats at multiple food venues all throughout the Zoo!
