ZooBoo Tickets Are Now On Sale
Every year, the Great Plains Zoo & Delbridge Museum of Natural History thrills kids and adults alike with ZooBoo, a three-night Halloween extravaganza. Costumed kids and their families will wind their way through the decorated exhibits and walkways in the Zoo collecting candy and trinkets at a variety of treat tents with costumed presenters. Highlights include the Creepy Carousel - which kids can ride, a giant elephant pumpkin, lighted animal displays, and the "Hall of Flames," which features over 300 hand-carved and lit Jack-o'-lanterns. Along the way, visitors dressed as their favorite superheroes or movie characters also will pass by the Endangered Species Graveyard and see the markers for extinct animals like the Dodo Bird and Caspian Tiger.
"ZooBoo is a safe, non-scary event for the whole family," said Elizabeth A. Whealy, President and CEO of the Great Plains Zoo. "The Zoo provides a great atmosphere, and our staff and sponsors make sure everyone has more than enough treats to take home."
