‘Boo at the Zoo’ is out, ‘Wild Fall’ is in at the Denver Zoo!

Denver Zoo Wild Fall

There won’t be any trick-or-treating at the Denver Zoo this fall but their new fall celebration, Wild Fall, offers all the family-focused fun of Boo at the Zoo, but with some enhancements and twists aimed at connecting guests to the natural—and supernatural—world. Wild Fall runs throughout the month of October with multiple moments of mystical surprises and more than 3,000 wild animals to discover. As guests explore the Zoo’s 84-acre campus, they’ll find the following:

  • Convincing evidence that cryptids—mythical beasts that are believed, but not yet proven, to exist—walk among us.
  •  Costumes and characters, creature-carved pumpkins, festive food and drink, and special animal demonstrations that link these supernatural beings—like Bigfoot and the Kraken—to wildlife around the world.  
  • The Zoo will NOT be offering trick-or-treating and candy during Wild Fall, however, guests are welcome to bring their own Halloween candy—and other snacks and drinks—to enjoy throughout the day.  
  • Guests are strongly encouraged to wear costumes—especially animal costumes—but are asked to refrain from wearing masks that cover eyes or outfits that are scary or gory. 


 All Wild Fall activities are part of regular daytime admission and take place throughout normal daytime hours starting at 8:30 a.m. for members and 10 a.m. for the general public. 

Members and guests are encouraged to reserve/purchase tickets in advance due to the popularity of the event and the likelihood that many days and timeslots will sell out. For more information about Wild Fall and to purchase tickets, visit
