Do kids have to wear costumes?
  Kids ages 12 and under are encouraged to wear (non scary) costumes but it is not a requirement.

Can adults wear costumes?
  Adults may wear costumes be we ask that they be family friendly (not scary). And because this event is geared toward families with young children, adults ages 18 and older may not wear masks that cover the face.

Yes! Since this event is held from 10am - 4 pm, guests can enjoy all their favorite animals and the Zoo as they would normally.

Can adults trick-or-treat?
  No, trick-or-treating is reserved for kids ages 12 and younger, so adults cannot trick-or-treat.

Will train rides be free during Boo at the Zoo?
  No. Boo at the Zoo admission includes the Trick-or-Treat Trail, Bounce Houses, Creepy Crawly Critter Touch Station, Animal Encounters, and Face Painting. Train rides tickets are available for $4.00 each.

Are we limited to one visit at each station along Trick-or-Treat Trail?
  There is so much to do during the event that we ask that guests who already received treats form a station, complete all the stations throughout the Trick-or-Treat Trail  before visiting the same station again.

Should children bring their own trick-or-treat bags?
  No, it is not necessary to bring your own bag.  Each paying child will receive a festive bag for the Trick-or-Treat Trail upon arrival.
