Featured Event: Zoo Boo 2023

Zoo Boo is one of my favorite events to attend each year as a family & I highly recommend it if you’ve never gone before.

Celebrate the Halloween season at the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park on Fridays and Saturdays, October 13th, 14th, 20th, 21st, 27th, and 28th. They have NEW HOURS this year: North Shore Bank Zoo Boo will take place on Fridays from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturdays from 2:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

No tricks – Treat Stations are back! Bring your trick-or-treat bags and don’t forget to wear your costumes – adults and kids alike are encouraged to dress up! Throughout the event, guests can enjoy kids’ games, ride the carousel, see the animals, make your way through the Happy Haunted Maze in the Children’s Zoo, and enjoy all the spooktacular, family-friendly decorations. Feeling brave? Take a walk through the Haunted Zoo Zone – if you dare!

Plus, download the FREE Photo Fun Safari app and play the Zoo Boo Skeleton Safari! Find our fan-favorite skeletons (like Scuba Steve and Billy the Skeleton!) making mischief around the zoo. Take their photos through the app to complete the scavenger hunt, then stop by the Prize Table where kids can choose a prize just for playing! The app is available now for both iPhone and Android devices – just be sure to download or update your app before arrival to the zoo to access the Skeleton Safari sponsored by Phone Fun Safaris.

Tickets are $15 each (kids under 3 are free) or for $20 each, you can get a Canopy Tour + Zoo Boo Combo Ticket and enjoy all the fun of Zoo Boo PLUS a walk on the Neil Anderson Canopy Tour. When buying tickets, choose a 60- or 90-minute arrival window and arrive anytime during the window you choose. Stay as long you wish until the Zoo closes. Zoo gates close 30 minutes prior to the event end time and the Canopy Tour’s last departure will be at 7:00 p.m. on Fridays and 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays.

Specially priced Ticket 4 Packs will be available for $50 per 4 Pack at North Shore Bank locations in Northeastern Wisconsin starting September 25th. Visit northshorebank.com/locations to find a location near you. Online ticket sales are now open at newzoo.org here. Everyone aged 3 and above must have an event ticket for entry.
