The Philadelphia Zoo's "Boo at the Zoo" allows children the opportunity to experience the zoo in a spooky way. Kids wear their favorite Halloween costumes and wander through a not-so-scary Extinction Graveyard which highlights information on species that are nearing extinction.

In addition, visitors can run through the hay maze, take pictures in front of the pumpkin wall, and enjoy apple cider and trick or treat bags. Zoo parking is available along Girard Avenue and 34th Street and costs $16. Parking is free for zoo members with proper ID.
