Boo at the Zoo at ZSL London Zoo this Halloween Half Term
Saturday 24 October to Sunday 2 November 2015

ZSL London Zoo's Boo at the Zoo returns for another wicked week this Halloween half term, enchanting little monsters with a cauldron of animal activities and talks.

From Saturday 24 October to Sunday 2 November 2015, visitors to ZSL London Zoo will be treated to a week of fiendish fun.

Guests of all ages will be amazed by arachnids in the Zoo's In with the Spiders exhibit, learning how they use their venom to snare their prey and unravelling the mysteries of their web-spinning talents, while coming face-to-face with breath-taking golden orb spiders in Europe's only walk-through spider forest.

The celebration of astounding arachnids doesn't stop there - kids can join a web of activity and with arachnid-themed creations and spider talks in The Widow's Lair, while the arts and crafts continue in the Bat Cave with bat mask making for terrifying transformations.

Creative critters will create eerie enrichment by preparing fruit for the bearded pigs to bob for and can carve out pumpkins for £3 at the pumpkin patch.

In the Grimm Curiosity Shop spooky spell story time will entrance young visitors as they help to concoct outlandish animal potions, spellbinding talks in the Owl Emporium will demonstrate owls' seemingly supernatural powers including silent soaring and impressive head swivelling.

The Halloween week will run from Saturday 24 October to Sunday 2 November with Boo at the Zoo activities taking place between 11am - 4pm. All activities are included in the ZSL London Zoo standard admission price. Visit http://www.zsl.org to book now.
