It’s time to “get your Spook On” at the Milwaukee County Zoo with “Boo at the Zoo,” sponsored by AAA, this year as a new drive-thru “merry not scary” adventure! Advance online reservations are required for “Boo at the Zoo Drive-Thru,” beginning Wednesday, Sept. 16, at 8 a.m. at shop.milwaukeezoo.org/#/SpecialEvents. Boo at the Zoo runs Thursday, Oct. 22 through Sunday, Oct. 25 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

From the comfort of your vehicle, you’ll ride on Zoo pathways (a FIRST in the history of Zoo events!) and take in a variety of Halloween-themed areas, carved pumpkins and illuminated light shows! The ride is specially designed for kids of all ages, AND kids at heart.

The 30-minute, 1.5-mile Halloween ride travels on wide and winding pathways through the Zoo. (For safety purposes, animals are not viewable during these evenings.)

Concession stops will be available along the way to purchase snacks and treats. Merchandise areas will be available to purchase a favorite memento from the first Boo at the Zoo Drive-Thru.

After much careful thought and consideration, the re-imagined Boo at the Zoo Drive-Thru offers visitors a socially responsible event option. The safety of our visitors, staff and animals continues to be the top priority. Boo at the Zoo serves as a fundraiser for the Milwaukee County Zoo, and as direct support to the 2,000+ animals in our care.

The Zoo is proud to offer this community event that all visitors can enjoy from the safety of their own cars. For further details, including mask requirements during the event and a list of Frequently Asked Questions, click here.
