During Boo at the LA Zoo, Halloween adventures take place daily during the month of October, with extra special entertainment taking place on weekends. My family & I visited the LA Zoo earlier this month to preview all of the festive activities.
Just past the zoo’s entrance is the Ghoulish Grove where you can pose for pictures inside the haunted gallery.
Afterwards you can walk through the Graveyard Safari mystery maze.
On weekends, watch expert pumpkin carvers create their masterpieces at a table inside of Ghoulish Grove.
Head on over to the Creepy Caves where you can see shadows of spiders & slithering snakes.
Over at the LAIR (Living Amphibians, Invertebrates, and Reptiles) exhibit, you can check out lizards, rare snakes & poisonous frogs.
Special weekend activities include:
Watch animals chomp down on Halloween treats like pumpkins! Make sure to check the schedule for dates & times of these special seasonal feedings.
Musical Monster Mash-Up
Laugh & sing along during this special Halloween puppet show!
During our visit, we saw a Komodo dragon chowing down on a meaty bone. Note: If you’re squeamish, then you might not want to watch the carcass feedings, which take place on select weekend dates.
Halloween Block Party
Craft stations, games & dance parties take place in the Treetops area, next to the carousel.
Trick or Treating
Zoo guests can enjoy trick or treating on October 29 & 30.
By the way, if you haven’t visited Dinosaurs: Unextinct at the LA Zoo, then you’ll want to venture on over to view the spook-tacular sights!
