Enjoy more spooktastic fun than ever before with extended hours. New daytime hours allow guests to celebrate the season with their favorite Good Zoo animals who will remain in their habitats throughout the event.

Fridays: 5 – 8 p.m.
Saturdays & Sundays: 11 a.m. – 8 p.m.

Spend more time at the zoo and less time in line with timed entry ticketing!

Experience our new, virtual scavenger hunt featuring nine stations located along the Good Zoo’s outdoor walking path and train ride.

Unlock clues by scanning QR codes at each station for a chance to win weekly prizes including free admission tickets, family memberships, and animal encounters!

Each ghoulish guest ages 3-12* will receive a bag of delicious goodies upon completion of our new, digital scavenger hunt!

These tasty treats will include your favorites like Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar, Airheads, Cow Tales, Pepsi, and more!
