Twycross Zoo has revealed details of this year’s Boo at the Zoo Halloween celebrations, which will feature plenty of spooky fun for families.
The event will take place at the 100-acre Leicestershire zoo from Saturday, October 24, to Sunday, November 1.
Visitors can attempt to escape the ghosts of Madagascar as they enter Lemur Walkthrough.
In some history books, the natives of Madagascar referred to lemurs as ghosts due to their loud calls and piercing eyes.
Throughout this creepy trail, visitors will be tasked to the crack the code by finding clues and answering questions so they can make their safe escape.
The most-popular activity of 2019’s Boo at the Zoo event, broomstick training, will be back.
With new Covid-secure measures in place, the zoo’s wickedly wonderful witch will be teaching all of the mini witches and wizards the ins and outs of riding a broomstick, with lots of fun thrown in too.
New for this year, children can take part in a trick or treat trail located in the pet cemetery, where they can count all of the creepy crawlies and collect a sweet surprise at the end.
Visitors will be able to meet the witch, who will be chanting spooky songs of ghosts and ghouls, getting everyone dancing the monster mash in Witchy Come Dancing, and reading a spooky Halloween story – all whilst encouraging social distancing.
Zoo-goers will also be able to see the singing pumpkins display as they explore the zoo, discovering 500 animals such as tigers, rhino, penguins and meerkats.
Children can also enjoy the outdoor play areas and take a ride in their own safari car (extra cost applies).
In the Himalaya visitor centre, there is food and drink available to purchase, a gift shop, and soft play area (extra cost applies).
Tickets must be booked online in advance, via the website here.
