Proceeds from all activities are used for improvements to your zoo. Zoo Boise will be open from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm, with last admission at 4:30 pm. Entrance to Boo at the Zoo is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors (62+), $7 for kids (3-11), and infants 2 and under are free. This event is free to Friends of Zoo Boise members.


For Boo at the Zoo there will be a free shuttle service provided by Boise Parks and Recreation to get to and from the zoo.
