Boo at the Zoo!

Brace yourselves for Boo at the Zoo Week – when there’ll be plenty of frighteningly good fun for everyone at DZG.


In addition to our spooky ghost walk each day at 3.30pm, there’s an extra eerie walk at 1.15pm throughout the week.

There will also be Hallowe’en colouring sheets on the Farm and in the Discovery Centre with a chance to win an adoption pack for Raptor our Red-kneed Tarantula along with spooky face painting in the education block too. 

Marketing Manager, Andrea Hales, said: “There’s lots going on throughout the week including an extra ghost walk around the cobbles of the 11th century Castle.

“There’s also a chance to come face-to-face with some creepy critters, so come along – it’ll be fang-tastic!”

Our Safari Gift Shop has plenty of tricks and treats and to tantalise your tastebuds there’s some scarily good deals in the Oak Kitchen at the Queen Mary Restaurant.


ABOVE – Customer Services Team Member Gavin Maybury gets in the Hallowe’en spirit!

The restaurant is serving up two hot meals and two drinks for £15.95, a Danish pastry and hot drink for £3.95, mint hot chocolate for £2.95 and a vanilla latte at £2.85. There are also lots more Hallowe’en goodies priced from £1.95.

The week ends with our Little Monsters Hallowe’en Hocus Pocus event on Friday October 30 and for grown-ups we’re running two paranormal evenings.

Join us if you dare – it’ll be spook-tacular!
