UPDATE: Boo at the Zoo has been cancelled for Saturday, October 24th due to weather/COVID restrictions. We are still scheduled to host the event on October 31st.
New for 2020! Buy your tickets online in advance and save over our regular admission rates: Note: Advance ticket purchase is designed primarily to facilitate contactless entry when you arrive. All guests must wait in the queue to enter the Zoo, including those with advance tickets. We will work to get you in as quickly as possible.
There are NO refunds on these ticket purchases. In the event that you are unable to attend 'Boo at the Zoo,' during your selected date, you are more than welcome to attend one of the other 'Boo at the Zoo' dates or visit the Zoo another time.
We've extended the BOO-tastic fun by adding an additional date for 2020. Boo at the Zoo will now take place on October 17th, 24th, and 31st from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
We strongly encourage you to wear your best Halloween mask while visiting the Red River Zoo.
We have social distancing markers and reminders throughout the Zoo.
All of our staff and vendors will be wearing masks and sanitizing frequently.
Some Zoo buildings like the Wolf Cabin and Discovery Barn will be closed during 'Boo at the Zoo' to minimize congestion.
We have a limit on how many people can be in the Zoo at a time. We'll be counting people as they enter and depart.
We'll have a one way path going through the Zoo and a separate entrance and exit to cut down on cross traffic.
To help minimize contact during the admissions process, we encourage you to purchase your tickets in advance at the link above or consider using contactless payment methods like Apple Pay or Android Pay. Even better, become a Red River Zoo member and you'll just have to show us your card as you enter. You can learn about memberships here: https://redriverzoo.org/membership-overview/
