A family-friendly Halloween event! Join us for our annual Boo at the Zoo!  Although it looks a little different this year*, we still have plenty of spook-tacular holiday fun planned.

NEW Drive-Thru BOOmobile!

Turn your automobile into your very own BOOmobile! Due to new COVID-19 restrictions, our regular BOOmobile looks a little different this year, but you can enjoy the experience from the safety and comfort of your OWN vehicle! 

Nestled in the heart of the Rouge Valley, the Toronto Zoo is one of the most picturesque spots in the city to enjoy the beautiful fall colours, all from the comfort of your vehicle! Join us on Friday and Saturday evenings until October 31st  to experience our Drive-Thru BOOmobile - a spooktacular, family-friendly drive-thru event. 

On this adventure, you and your family can enjoy the beautiful fall foliage and festive decor while listening to Halloween-themed commentary. Learn about the ghosts that haunt the Zoo, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled because you might just see one along the way! Learn about how the animal kingdom has contributed to Halloween traditions in a special Halloween themed podcast. It is up to you to choose to take these tales as fact or fiction!

You will also pass by our Hay-lloween town, a special exhibit featuring hay bale masterpieces created by our very own Zoo staff, volunteers and community partners.

This family friendly adventure lasts approximately 30 minutes and is suitable for children and adults of all ages. 

Please note that animals will not be viewable during this experience.

Price per car: $25.00 - Members & $30.00 for Non-Members
