It's Now The 'BOOmobile Drive-Thru' At The Toronto Zoo

While the Toronto Zoo had originally intended to host its usual BOOmobile event this year, new COVID-19 restrictions have changed the event into something different. Now, you can turn your automobile into the BOOmobile, and enjoy the experience safely and comfortably.

During their spooky drive, families can enjoy the beautiful fall foliage of the Rouge Valley and see festive décor, all while listening to Halloween-themed commentary. Learn about the ghosts that inhabit and haunt the Zoo and be on the lookout ― you may just spot one of those spirits along the way. What's more, the Zoo will enlighten you with stories about how the animal kingdom contributed to Halloween traditions in a special Halloween themed podcast. Fact or fiction? You decide!

There's more 'in-person' fun to take in at the Zoo this Fall...

'Hay-lloween Town' Special Exhibit
Creative and fun displays created by Toronto Zoo staff and volunteers feature Fall and Halloween themed decorated hay bales. You'll find it all at the Savanna Picnic Site. The Fall décor provides lots of photo opps and is free with Zoo admission. Daily until October 31. 

Boo at the Zoo
Though different than past events, the Zoo is still planning plenty of spook-tacular holiday fun. Unfortunately, the annual 'Kids in Costume Event' ― where kids ages 12 and under who dressed up were admitted for free ― is not being offered this year. All guests are required to purchase tickets online.

If you're interested in participating in the Drive-Thru BOOmobile, the event is priced at $25.00 per vehicle for members and $30.00 for non-members. The family-friendly adventure lasts about 30 minutes and is suitable for all ages. Get creative! The Zoo is encouraging families to wear costumes and decorate their cars ― it is after all your 'BOOmobile.'

The event runs Fridays and Saturdays until October 31 (October 16-17, 23-24 and 30-31).
