Cheyenne Mountain Zoo has been hosting sold-out nights of Boo at the Zoo since it started on Fri., Oct. 21 – and there just one more night to get into the spooky spirit with your favorite animals.

Halloween night, Monday., Oct. 31, is the final night of Boo at the Zoo, and there are still a handful of timed tickets left. Advance tickets are required and must be purchased for all attendees (including kids 2-and-under) at

This Colorado Springs Halloween tradition is a fun way for families to trick-or-treat at 29 stations throughout the Zoo and enjoy Halloween festivities in a unique environment. Boo at the Zoo is from 4 to 8:30 p.m. and ticketholders can enter the Zoo at the time on their timed tickets.

In addition to visiting select animal exhibits and trick-or-treating, frightfully fun attractions include a lighted pumpkin patch, a kid-friendly spooky haunted house, Ghoulish Graveyard and Pirates Cove. Attendees can also enjoy rides on the Mountaineer Sky Ride, weather permitting.

An elephant-sized amount of candy (4.5 tons) will be handed out at trick-or-treat stations throughout Boo at the Zoo. The Zoo’s candy supply is purchased from companies that are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), and have committed to using sustainable palm oil for the protection of orangutan habitats in the wild.

Boo at the Zoo will go on, rain, snow or shine. Be sure to bundle up on cold nights and enjoy a Colorado evening on the mountain!
