Get set for a frighteningly fun-filled Halloween at Bristol Zoo Gardens

Bristol Zoo Gardens is offering visitors a frighteningly good time this half term holiday!

From Saturday October 21st to Sunday October 29th, the Zoo will be undergoing a spooky makeover and getting into the Halloween spirit.

There will be giant skull masks around the Zoo and a special haunted trail. Children can search for a series of creepy clues and then make a spine-tingling skull mask at the end.

The Zoo’s own gorilla costume character, Kuki, will lead a fun-filled Halloween parade for children twice a day. There will also be an immersive storyteller spooking everyone with tales of skeletons, ghouls and ghosts. Children can also get their faces painted in chilling Halloween designs.

And the Zoo will be offering its usual hands-on animal experiences at its daily ‘Animal Encounters’ sessions as well as its dazzling Amazing Animals shows and a host of other talks and feeds.

The Zoo’s Hide café restaurant and the Hungry Monkey drinks and sandwich hut will also have Halloween treats on offer.

Paul Pritchard, Bristol Zoo’s marketing manager, said: “This is going to be Bristol Zoo’s spookiest, fun-filled Halloween ever and we hope everyone will enjoy it.”

Bristol Zoo is also offering £5 ticket price for each child who comes to the Zoo with a paying adult between October 21 and November 5.
