The NEW Zoo & Adventure Park is excited to announce North Shore Bank as the title sponsor for our 25th anniversary Halloween event: North Shore Bank Zoo Boo – 25 Years! Tickets for this event will be available for purchase starting October 1st.

In honor of Zoo Boo’s 25th anniversary this year, we’re celebrating with some spooktacular additions! The Zoo is hosting a FREE TICKET give-away contest for area students: “25 Classes for 25 Years.” Local classes who submit video entries will have a chance to win free tickets for every student to attend Zoo Boo 2019. Visit newzoo.org for contest rules and more information. In addition to the ticket give-away, this year’s event will also feature specially-themed weekends! Guests can come dressed to match the theme for extra fun, and take your photos at our themed photo booth!

North Shore Bank Zoo Boo takes place from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on the following Friday & Saturdays

October 11th & 12th Dinosaur Weekend

Save money by purchasing tickets in advance for the special price of $10 per person. Tickets at the gate will be $12 per person. (Children under 3 are free). Everyone is encouraged to come in costume (don’t forget to consider matching the theme of the weekend!) and kids under 16 can trick-or-treat throughout the NEW Zoo – so don’t forget your treat bags! The Zoo will be filled with festive Halloween decorations, two giant inflatables, a Children’s Maze, live Swamp Monsters, and for the brave: a horse-drawn, haunted wagon ride (starting at 5pm) through our ‘Freaky Forest’ during the first two weekends of the event. Dunavin Audio DJ will also be on hand to rock the night away.

Be sure to visit the R-Tek Safety Solutions Hay Bale Decorating Contest area inside the Zoo and vote on your favorite hay bale decoration. Local individuals and organizations have entered their designs to help decorate for the event, as well as the opportunity to win prizes!

Note: The NEW Zoo will close at 2:00 p.m. on Zoo Boo dates so we can prepare for the fun!  Entry gates will reopen at 3:00 p.m. for the event and close at 7:30 p.m.

Advance tickets are available for purchase at:  North Shore Banks throughout NE WI, Suamico Citgo, Charlie’s County Market in Shawano, Witt’s Piggly Wiggly in Crivitz, Econo Foods in Sturgeon Bay, online and at the NEW Zoo Visitor Center.

The Adventure Park is also getting into the Halloween Spirit with Evening “Glow Zips!” From 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on all Zoo Boo dates, the Adventure Park will host “Glow-Zipping,” a fun in-the-dark ziplining experience.
