Daily Activity Schedule
Please check back in late summer for the 2013 Daily Activity Schedule.
Please check back in late summer for a schedule of Special Days. In 2012, Special Days included Princess Day, Magic Day, and Star Wars Day!
Our treats are orangutan-friendly!
All treats offered at the Wild Zoo Halloween are palm-oil free or are manufactured by companies that are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). The sustainable production of palm oil is crucial to the survival of orangutans, because their rain forest habitat is often destroyed to create poorly managed and unsustainable palm oil plantations. Download a Palm Oil Shopping Guide to help you make orangutan-friendly choices when you shop.
Use this guide to make orangutan-friendly choices when purchasing your own Halloween candy to distribute to trick-or-treaters at home.
Are there additional fees?
Everything listed under Daily Activity Schedule and Special Days is included with your admission, along with 10 treats for every child and a free pumpkin from the Pumpkin Patch. Additional fees are charged for these optional activities: Train Ride, carnival-style games, bead bracelet, face painting, pony ride, and food purchases zoo concession stands.
