It's that time of year again, kids love it, parents not so much because they have to come up with another custom their kids will LOVE and pass the safe-to-wear factor.  At least parents can feel comfortable that there is a safe SUPER fun place to trick or treat, at the Lake Superior Zoo's Boo at the Zoo!  Hurry, it's coming soon!

Tickets are on sale NOW!

The event is SO big, it's held two weekends, Saturdays, October 12th & 19th, from 10 am to 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. Enjoy the too-many-to-count treat stations throughout the zoo (be sure to stop by the B105 booth!), 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.  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.

$1 will be added to each online order to cover shipping and handling. If you prefer, you can purchase tickets at the zoo or at an area Little Store.
