Celebrate Halloween! at the Buffalo Zoo is bigger and better and this year the fall fun lasts all month long! Family-friendly favorites like our Trick-or-Treat trail (open 11:00 am to 2:00 pm) return along with an all-new line-up of safe and not-so-scary activities, like our corn maze and costume parade. Be sure to carve out some time in your day to pick-a-pumpkin at our patch and add your own dazzling decorations (for an additional fee) or watch our on-site pros create stunning and unique designs at our daily demonstrations. And, little ghouls and goblins won’t want to miss making memories with the characters at our photo spot and complimentary rides on the carousel and train!
Once you’re done with all the Halloween fun, stay and explore -- Zoo admission is included in the ticket price. This event is designed for children ages 12 and under.
