Saturday, October 12th & 19th • 10 am - 4 pm

Boo at the Zoo is the Northland’s premiere Halloween event for families.  Enjoy trick or treating within the safe and beautiful grounds of the Lake Superior Zoo.  Bring along your “little pumpkins” and enjoy the too-many-to-count treat stations throughout the zoo, Halloween-themed activities, food vendors and hundreds of zoo animals.  Activities include a huge pumpkin patch to play in, hourly costume contests, free hayrides, face painting, games, and a special “Creepy Critters” animal exhibit. All the activities are designed to be fun for kids - not scary.  Plus, we NEVER run out of candy, so arrive anytime. 

Tickets are $9 in advance or $10 at the door.  Tickets can be purchased at the zoo, online until October 7th, or at any area Little Store through October 19th.  Adult members of the Lake Superior Zoo are admitted for free, as are children under age 2 who are not trick or treating.  Children 2 and older must purchase a ticket.  New this year:  Free round-trip DTA transportation with advance ticket purchase is available.

Purchase tickets at the zoo or at an area Little Store.

New this year:  Free round-trip DTA transportation to Boo at the Zoo with advance ticket purchase.

As part of its conservation mission, the Lake Superior Zoo has teamed up with the DTA to offer tickets good for free round-trip transportation to and from “Boo at the Zoo” for up to 500 people.  Riding the DTA bus is a great way to conserve fuel and it will also help ease parking congestion at the zoo. 

This offer is available for Boo at the Zoo advance ticket purchases only.  Tickets are available upon request, while supplies last, and are good for transportation to and from the Lake Superior Zoo on October 12, 2013 or October 19, 2013 only.  The number of bus passes issued cannot exceed the number of tickets sold.

How it works: 

Purchase your Boo at the Zoo tickets for $9 in advance at the zoo, or at the Duluth and Proctor Little Stores through October 19th.  When purchasing tickets “in person” merely ask if the bus tickets are available.  For on-line purchases, indicate how many round trip bus tickets you require during the checkout process.  NOTE:  Children ages 4 and under ride free on the DTA, so do not request tickets for these children.  A maximum of three children ages 4 and under ride free when accompanied by an attending passenger age 13 or older.

Call 218.730.4500 ext. 200 for admission rates and Advance Ticket information or email info@lszoo.org.
