Don’t wait, get your tickets early for Haunt the Zoo, celebrating 40 years of magic, wild memories and trick-or-treating fun that can’t be outdone! This year, the Oklahoma City Zoo is commemorating the 40th anniversary of Haunt the Zoo, Oklahoma’s largest and longest-running Halloween tradition, and going above and beyond to make this special year even more spooktacular. Presented by News 9, Haunt the Zoo, provides a festive setting for families and friends to enjoy time together while enjoying a unique, safe trick-or-treating experience surrounded by the Zoo’s wondrous wildlife! Trick-or-treaters will discover originally themed photo booths with elaborate decorations and props along the Haunt the Zoo trail as they collect treats from friendly volunteers. Show off your festive best and wear your Halloween costume to Haunt the Zoo. Adults are encouraged to dress up, too, but nothing scary. Haunt the Zoo occurs Saturdays and Sundays, October 7 through 29. Trick-or-treating is available each day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with a morning reservation block from 9 a.m. to noon and an afternoon block from noon to 4 p.m. General Zoo admission or ZOOfriends memberships plus, official Haunt the Zoo treat bags are required to trick-or-treat and must be purchased in advance.
