Zoo Boo on Halloween

  • The Alaska Zoo 4731 O'Malley Road Anchorage, AK, 99507 United States (map)


Trick-or-treat our spooky zoo trails and get a photo with the 501st Legion's Alaska Garrison and ACOA! Join us at the zoo on Halloween Tuesday, October 31st from 5-8pm (last entry at 7:30pm). Your friends and family will have a spooktacular time with trick-or-treat stations and activities all over the zoo and a bonfire for warming toes.

Tickets include admission and event entry: $6/person for zoo members, $8/person for non-members, kids ages 2 and under are free. You can buy your tickets in advance online and print them to bring with you OR pay at the gate during the event. Last entry into the zoo will be at 7:30pm.


The entire zoo will be decorated in Halloween spirit, so bring your camera to photograph your trick-or-treaters. YOU WILL ALSO HAVE A CHANCE TO GET YOUR PHOTO WITH THE 501ST LEGION'S ALASKA GARRISON AND ACOA! Their station in the lower polar bear viewing will impress and amaze visitors! (see 501st Legion members at right).

Buy a warm drink or meal in the Coffee Shop. The Gift Shop will be open for shopping and souvenirs. Stop by our Discovery Center to fight off the chill and learn about how the zoo began. Be sure to come in costume and bring a trick-or-treat bag or bucket. We have tons of candy, activities and safe trick-or-treating fun for everyone!

TICKETS ARE ONLINE NOW, SO BE SURE YOU BUY YOURS TODAY (SEE LINK ABOVE). We will have shuttle parking at South High School with Premier Alaska buses running shuttle rides to and from the zoo every 10-15 minutes during the event. We encourage visitors to use this shuttle option to keep lines moving and reduce congestion at the zoo entrance and parking lots. Please remember that last entry through the zoo gate for the event will be at 7:30pm, so you will need to arrive at shuttle parking to take a ride to the zoo by 7:15pm.
