zoo boo
Grab your little ghosts and goblins, because Zoo Boo presented by LyondellBasell at the Houston Zoo is back! This popular family-friendly weekend event starts this Friday, October 2, and runs until November 1. Cooler weather means it’s time for Houstonians to start spending time outdoors, and Zoo Boo is a perfect way to spend a fall weekend in our city.

Who says Halloween enjoyment must be confined to Oct. 31? Tons of people love to celebrate Halloween for the whole month of October, and the Houston Zoo does too! So for the next few weeks, the Houston Zoo will be home to fun and spooky sights as guests visit their favorite animal friends and partake in Halloween fun.

There is no shortage of great photo ops and fun activities during Zoo Boo. Highlights include the Spooky Train Village, a Friendly Dragon, the Scary-Go-Round, 10+ Instagram-worthy photo op spots, and more. Costumes are encouraged!
It’s important to note, however, that Zoo Boo will not include a pumpkin patch or candy giveaways this year due to safety precautions during the pandemic.
Zoo Boo is part of your regular zoo admission, which means it’s free for members. It’s available all week long during regular business hours.

Remember, online reservations are required for all guests and members at this time. You have to choose a date and time window to book your spot.
