Halloween is NOT cancelled—at least not at Denver Zoo. Families throughout Colorado are invited to the Zoo daily from October 1 to 31 for Boo at the Zoo: Storybook Safari, a modified, masked version of Denver’s family favorite fall tradition. The Zoo’s 80-acre, mostly outdoor campus will come to life with costumed characters, enchanting animal experiences and festive seasonal fildood fit for a king or queen.
And Nature Connects, Art with LEGO Bricks will run through October 31 with more than 15 nature-inspired creations by Artist Sean Kenney, including giant LEGO spiders and bats fitting for the Halloween season.
The award-winning exhibit invites guests to connect to nature and the world’s vanishing species through life-size and larger-than-life plant and animal sculptures, placed throughout the Zoo and made entirely of LEGO bricks.
Both events are included in regular daily admission during the following hours through October:
Monday to Thursday: 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (last entry at 3:15 p.m.)
Friday to Sunday: 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. (last entry at 4:15 p.m.)
Timed tickets must be purchased in advance. You can buy them here.
General Admission (includes Boo at the Zoo):
Adults (Ages 12–64): $20
Seniors (Ages 65+): $17
Children (Ages 3–11): $14

To ensure the safety of all Zoo visitors and members, candy will NOT be handed out this year and all existing safety and health measures will remain in place, including:
- Limited number of visitors per day
- Timed tickets that are staggered every 15 minutes
- A modified one-way path around the entire campus
- Hand sanitizer and hand-washing stations placed throughout the Zoo.
All guests ages three (3) and over are required to wear a mask or face covering at all times except when actively eating or drinking while stationary and physically distanced. Guests without masks will not be admitted.
