Meijer Presents Boo at the Zoo


Special Ticket Required. A Louisville tradition for over 40 years, Boo at the Zoo, presented by Meijer, transforms your Zoo into a living storybook, complete with some of your favorite characters brought to life, fun music and a safe place for trick-or-treating for kids 11 and under. We’re celebrating with an all inclusive party experience designed to give you all the kooky you love with none of the spooky. Our reduced nightly capacity eliminates the scary traffic delays when arriving for the party. Parking is easy and convenient in the Zoo’s lot and FREE for party guests!


Now all of your favorite Boo at the Zoo attractions are included with your admission! Your party ticket includes:

  • The Spooktacular Carousel

  • Our free-crawling “not-so-itsy-bitsy” Spider House

  • The Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow experience


Get your same sweet treats with fewer stops along the way. To help provide social distancing and to reduce contact, there will be a limited number of treat booths throughout the Zoo. This year, rather than receiving one treat per booth, kids 11 and under will receive multiple treats at each station!
