Frequently Asked Questions
Are the treats 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 Guideto help you make orangutan-friendly choices when you shop.
Is the whole zoo open?
Wild Zoo Halloween activities are located in the Central Zoo and portions of the Australian Adventure. The African Journey and Indonesian Rain Forest will not be open during the Wild Zoo Halloween.
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.
