Boo at the Zoo 2019 promises to be a 'Spook-tacular' affair

The Hope Zoo in St Andrew will be hosting its sixth staging of the Boo at the Zoo Charity Festival on Saturday, October 26, 2019.

Emceed by social media sensation Rohan ‘Quiet Perry’, the Zoo will be transformed for a spectacularly scary adventure from 6pm to 10pm.

Boo At The Zoo is a wholesome family event and this year’s staging promises to be the scariest yet.

“With rides, games, fun, and activities for all ages, Boo At The Zoo this year will feature two new trails — one for those brave enough to try and another just for the toddlers,” said Patrice Levy, manager of marketing and event management at Hope Zoo Preservation Foundation. “We will also have an exclusive Toddler’s Village to cater to babies and younger children.”

The children can also enjoy a tour through the Wizard of Oz-themed trail and experience the thrill of ZombiLand and the Mad Scientist Lab.

Attendees will get to witness wonders during magic and fire shows while winning amazing giveaways. Other features include a costume competition, trick or treating, and an artisan village, so patrons can start their early Christmas shopping.

Presold tickets of $1,200 are at Fontana Barbican and Waterloo Road, Baby Bop and Hope Zoo, and online tickets at Tickets will also be available at the event for $1,500 at the gate.

Proceeds from Boo At The Zoo by the Hope Zoo Preservation Foundation to manage the upkeep of the zoo including feeding the animals.
