Open only to ages 21+ with valid ID. Tickets are $45 each and are available at or at the gate. Zoo memberships, guest passes, discounts or any other promo tickets are NOT valid for the Masquerade.

Boo at the Zoo is coming! Are you ready?? On Oct. 20, 21 and 22, from 5 to 8:30 p.m., Idaho Falls’ largest Halloween event features family-friendly costume contests.

Zoo Lights on October 24 and 25 from 6 to 8:00 p.m. Enjoy the beautiful lights as you stroll the zoo. Zoo Lights does not feature trick-or-treat stations, games, and activities like Boo at the Zoo, just a relaxing evening at the zoo. Tickets are available at the gate for only $7 for adults, $4.50 for kids 3 to 12, and $0.50 for ages 2 and under. Zoo memberships and guest passes ARE valid during Zoo Lights.

Fall is a great time to visit the zoo to see some of the cold-hardy animals that become more active in the cooler temperatures. Be aware that as the temperatures decrease, the tropical birds and reptiles will be moved to their winter quarters inside the zoo, so they will not be available for public viewing.
