BOO AT THE ZOO IS STARTING SOON –Seven nights of spooktacular activities planned–

 
October 9, 2015, Colorado Springs, CO – Cheyenne Mountain Zoo will come alive with Halloween spirit when thousands of little princesses and pirates attend Boo at the Zoo, the region’s largest family-friendly Halloween party. Boo is a fun way to trick-or-treat and enjoy Halloween festivities in a safe and unique environment. Boo at the Zoo is Oct. 17 & 18, 23 – 25, and 30 & 31. Boo hours are from 4 – 8:30 p.m. all seven nights, with the last admission sold at 7:30 p.m. (Cheyenne Mountain Zoo admission windows will close for daytime admission at 2 p.m.)

Frightfully fun attractions include a Lighted Pumpkin Patch, Haunted Fun House, Ghoulish Graveyard and Pirate Cove. Plus, a visit to the Zoo wouldn’t be complete without animals! Special keeper talks, animal demos and bootastic animal encounters will be offered each night. Select animal exhibits will also be open, including giraffes, lions, meerkats, The Loft, Monkey Pavilion, Aquatics and, new this year, Australia Walkabout.

An elephant-sized amount of candy (more than 9,000 pounds!) will be handed out at Spooky Treat Stations throughout the Zoo during Boo at the Zoo. The Zoo’s candy supply is purchased from companies that are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), which is committed to the use of sustainable palm oil and the protection of orangutan habitat in Indonesia and Malaysia.
