Boo at the Zoo

  • Date: Oct 20, 21, 27, 28 2017
  • Location: Audubon Zoo, 6500 Magazine St New Orleans, LA 70118

Cost: $17 per person; free for kids under 12 months old

Get your little ghosts and goblins ready – Boo at the Zoo is one of the best Halloween events for kids in New Orleans.

On select days around Halloween, the Audubon Zoo turns into a Halloween extravaganza for kids under the age of 12. See if you can spot a ghost in one of the haunted houses (both scary and non-scary), or get a candy buzz at one of the trick-or-treat houses. There will also be games with prizes, an Endangered Species Carousel & Dinosaur Adventures Exhibit, three entertainment stages and more.

As in previous years, there will also be a Ghost Train! This year’s Ghost Train is Zombie-themed and is expected to be popular. However, it can be scary for ghosts under the age of 8, so please keep that warning in mind.

The zoo will close at 3 p.m. the day of the events, and the regular zoo areas will not be accessible during the events. It may be tempting to sneak a peek at some animals, but please remember that they need their sleep after a long day of being adorable.

To cut down on crowds and to provide a more relaxing, enjoyable experience, there are only a limited number of tickets available for each night. This means that tickets need to be purchased as early as possible.
