Boo at the Zoo



At the weekend we headed along to the Bronx Zoo to check out their spooktacular Boo at the Zoo event.

The annual celebration runs every weekend through October and the zoo really goes all out with family friendly Halloween themed activities.  You’ll find;

Jack O ‘Lantern displays
Costume Parades
Hay Maze
Pumpkin Carving
Treat Stations
Creepy Crafts
Music and Magic Shows

And that’s not to mention the animals! The Bronx Zoo has 265 acres of wildlife habitats and attractions. We have made many visits and still haven’t discovered it all. There are hundreds of animals our favourites include the giraffes, grizzly bears, gorillas and tigers.

We also really love the Wild Asia Monorail as its from here that you get to see the elephants, the camel ride is rather bumpy but so much fun and the bug carousel is always popular!  

The Bronx Zoo is quite the trek for us from here in Brooklyn, but it’s always certainly worth it.  You can drive or the 2 and 5 subway is nearby.

We have a family membership, which gives us unlimited access to all the New York zoos and the Aquarium. If you live in the New York area and have kids – I think this membership is a must! If you are just visiting you can buy your tickets online in advance. You save 10% and beat the lines at the gate. 

Find out more about the Bronx Zoo and the Boo at the Zoo event on their website.
