HallowZOOeen 2017 at the Tulsa Zoo

TULSA, Okla. (Aug. 16, 2017) – Grab your broomsticks and fly to HallowZOOeen Oct. 27-31, the Tulsa Zoo’s premier spooky (but not-too scary) Halloween trick-or-treat event.


Hours are 6-9 p.m. Last ticket will be sold at 8:30 p.m. Bonus, HallowZOOeen starts one hour early on Saturday and Sunday this year.

What is HallowZOOeen?
HallowZOOeen, Oct. 27-31, is a premier spooky (but not-too scary) Halloween trick-or-treat event at the Tulsa Zoo for the whole family. The zoo offers an alternative to traditional Halloween activities. Last year, more than 20,000 children had a safe place to enjoy the holiday during this fundraising event to support zoo operations.

Activities include Goblin Stops full of treats, carnival-style games in the Pumpkin Patch Playroom, special themed activities in both the Burger King Royal Castle and the QuikTrip Pirate Island, and much more.

What are the rules and costume guidelines?
HallowZOOeen is a family friendly event, so there are a few rules to ensure everyone has a great time. Check out the rules and costume guidelines here.

How much does it cost?
HallowZOOeen tickets are $8 for non-members and $7 for members. Haunted Train tickets are $5 and the Sary-Go-Round is $1, both optional. Tickets can be purchased online or at the Tulsa Zoo.

Are kids under 2 free?
No, kids 1-year-old and above all pay the standard admission price. Proceeds from this event are used to build a better zoo.

Do adults have to pay?
Yes, all attendees EXCEPT children under 1-year-old pay the admission price for HallowZOOeen. Proceeds from this event are used to build a better zoo.

What happens in case of rain or inclement weather?
HallowZOOeen is open rain or shine. We offer a number of indoor activities for the family. Some attractions close temporarily during lightning storms.

Can tickets be used any night?
Yes, tickets can be used any night of HallowZOOeen. If you purchase tickets on our website, it will ask you to choose a night, to help us estimate attendance. We will not hold you to the decision.

Can I wear a costume?
Costumes are optional, and definitely more fun. This is a family friendly event. Please keep costumes appropriate for the family atmosphere. You can check out the rules here.

Will I be able to see animals on exhibit at night during the event?
No, the animals are not on exhibit during HallowZOOeen. This is to ensure the safety of our animals and our guests during this nighttime event.

Are the train and carousel free for donors and Adventure Pass members?
Scary-Go-Round rides are included with your Adventure Pass or donor-level membership. Because this is a fundraiser and a special train experience, tickets for the Haunted Train Ride are $5 each for ages one and older.

How can I become a sponsor?

Goblin Stop sponsorships range from $2,000 to $3,000, candy included for you. The zoo will even stock and store your candy each night. It’s so easy to be a sponsor, it’s frightening! This event is supported by local media coverage, advertising and onsite signage. Exposure will include the Tulsa area media market, 21,000 member households of Tulsa Zoo Friends, more than 20,000 event attendees and up to 10,000 regular admission zoo guests the two weeks prior to the event.
