Indianapolis Zoo’s annual Zoo Boo

This is the last weekend for the Indianapolis Zoo’s annual Zoo Boo, packed with more spooktacular activities than ever.

There’s no need to fear as summer draws to a close – one of the Indianapolis Zoo’s most beloved fall festivities, ZooBoo presented by Central Indiana Honda Dealers, is back with more spooktacular activities, plus an extra weekend of fun!

Fall is already one of the best times to visit the Zoo, with the animals out and active in mild temperatures. Add Halloween decorations, photo opportunities and everyone’s favorite ZooBoo activities for a day families will love!

From 2-7pm for four thrilling weekends — Friday to Sunday from Oct. 3-26 —Zoo guests can enjoy Halloween activities with a Zoo flair.

Along with themed Dolphin Adventure Shows and animal keeper chats throughout the celebration, this year’s event offers new games groups won’t want to miss out on!

Guests can go head-to-head with other families testing trivia knowledge with Family Faceoff powered by Circle City Gameshows every 30 minutes, or race down Broomstick Alley presented by State Farm. Then they can stop by to see our elephant herd get into the Halloween spirit with the pumpkin-splattering fun of the Elephant Pumpkin Smash presented by Sam’s Club.

The Macy’s ZooBoo Activity Center in the Party Pavilion has fan favorites like Pumpkin Bowling presented by SmarTravel, the Spider Ring Toss and Bounce House presented by MetroPCS. Guests of all ages will enjoy dancing to monster music or getting a cookie to decorate, too!

Little ones are encouraged to dress up in their favorite costumes and bring a reusable goodie bag for a small trick-or-treat adventure along the path of our Plains exhibits. To not scare our younger guests, full masks are only permitted for children ages 12 and under, but for those who need help enhancing their costume, guests can visit one of the talented artists at a face-painting booth!

Don’t forget one of the highlights of ZooBoo – the White River Junction Train presented by Marathon! Little ones are sure to delight as they enjoy music, décor and a special treat from Zoo staff and volunteers, with costumes provided by Goodwill Industries. Plus there’s the bewitching fun of the Roller Ghoster presented by Outback Steakhouse and the carousel moving in reverse, our Round-Go-Merry presented by Geico.

ZooBoo is included with regular Zoo admission and free to Zoo members. Guests are encouraged to save time and money by planning their visit at Discount tickets are also available at Indianapolis-area Marsh and Indiana Members Credit Union locations. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
