Boo at the Zoo
Oct 19, 2019 - Oct 31, 2019 (ends in 13 days)

It's that magical time of the year when people stab pumpkins in the face with kitchen knives and get dressed up in ghoulish costumes to request free candy from strangers. Halloween is upon us again – and at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, the celebrations are kicking off in style!

Boo at the Zoo will take the scary season for a walk on the wild side, with themed animal talks, wrap-the-mummy, pumpkin-carving, and mask-making activities. Plus, there's the ever-popular Poo at the Zoo game, where the aim of the game is to match the animals to their foul creations...

There will also be scary storytelling, spooky face-painting, and a pumpkin dance party that's as lit as a jack-o-lantern!

Mad about animals? You can see almost 4,000 of them here at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, one of Europe's biggest wildlife conservation parks. Explore different zones like Cheetah Rock, Passage Through Asia, Giraffe Heights and Lions of the Serengeti, ride the steam train or explore on foot. It's an animal-tastic adventure!

There are 600 acres of animal kingdom awesomeness to explore here, and if you don't want to walk about, you can ride the Jumbo Express steam train!

See the homes of some 4,000 animals from over 200 different species. Check out Cheetah Rock, Passage through Asia, Giraffe Heights and get ready to roar like the Lions of the Serengeti. Walk through the In with the Lemurs exhibit and wave at the rhinos and more in their paddocks from various viewing platforms.

What do cheetahs eat? How do giraffes sleep? Do elephants really never forget? Animal fans can get their answers at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo, the UK's largest zoo.

No trip here is complete without visiting the aquarium, the first in the UK dedicated to conserving threatened and extinct-in-the-wild freshwater fish. Go on a journey around the world through ten of the planet's most fascinating aquatic environments, and come face-to-fin with some of the rarest fish species in existence.
