Event Details

BOO at the Zoo is back, and scarier than ever!

This Halloween, Dartmoor Zoo is opening its gates after dark to invite you to a truly FANG-tastic night at the zoo!

Join us on Friday 27th and Saturday 28th October for two FRIGHTfully good evenings, filled with shock horrors, hair raising delights and nail biting frights…

Gates open at 5.30pm with staggered entry tickets available. Event closes at 8.30pm

Listen out for rustling amongst the trees and peeping eyes as you make your way around the Zoo, meeting characters of the strange, unsavoury and nightmarish kind on your travels…

This event will have areas suitable for most families, however some areas will have advisories and some areas will not be suitable for young children. We will provide a map that lets you know where to find the thrills you seek!

We SCARE you to come!


(Friday) 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
