Train riders will hear “Tale of the Twisted Tree” as they venture into the Franke Park woods.

Detailed schedules of all Wild Zoo Halloween events are at http://kidszoo.org/events/wild-zoo-halloween/
Families, scouts, and schools can enter the 3rd annual Scarecrow Safari contest. Scarecrows will be on display throughout the Wild Zoo Halloween. Each participating group will be entered to win a free zoo field trip package valued at $139.
All treats offered at the Wild Zoo Halloween are palm-oil free or are manufactured by companies that are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). The sustainable production of palm oil is crucial to the survival of orangutans, because their rain forest habitat is often destroyed to create poorly managed and unsustainable palm oil plantations.
Admission for the Wild Zoo Halloween is $8 for children and $4 for adults. Zoo Members receive $2 off per person every day. Additional fees are charged for the train ride, pony ride, carnival-style games, bracelet-making, and face painting. Food is available for purchase.
