Ready to trick or treat yourself to a night at the zoo? All ghouls, monsters, ghosts, witches and creatures of the night are invited for a spooktacular evening. Join us for spooky festivities including games and Zoo hikes. Meet creatures up close and even help the Zoo decorate pumpkins! Plus, Halloween costumes are encouraged!
Night Crawlers is the perfect opportunity for your family to come spend the night with us. The evening begins with a pizza dinner and guests receive their very own Virginia Zoo water bottle. Participate in fun and educational activities including animal encounters, hikes, games and more! After a fun-filled evening, you’ll have a delicious breakfast and continue with a morning hike before joining our Keeper Staff in an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience.
