Boo at the Zoo will feature the pirates, superheroes, princesses, and wizards inspired by your favorite books and movies. While you stroll through the Zoo at a pace that works for your family, children will play old-fashioned games and activities while listening to music in Rancho Sahuarita’s Fall Festival Zone, explore a western skele-town, and visit the event sponsors for treats sure to please the whole family’s sweet tooth.

This year, the popular Crandell Glass Scary Loop will be featured in the Zoo’s South America loop (suggested for children 12 and older) for even more monster-ous thrills! Thanks to MetroPCS, every child will also leave with a full bag of candy. Scare-ousel will be open for rides for an additional fee.
