NEW Zoo Boo« Back to Events
The NEW Zoo (NE Wisconsin Zoo, that’s what “NEW” stands for) northwest of Green Bay celebrates the North Shore Bank NEW Zoo Boo once again in 2021! It’s happening this year on the Friday-Saturday weekends of October 8-9, 15-16, and 22-23. For 2020 there will be no hay rides or giant inflatables, but otherwise show up in costume and enjoy all treats and no tricks. As the NEW Zoo notes on its website, “this year, every guest over the age of 1 can receive a bag of candy on arrival (yes, even the grown-ups)! The Zoo will be filled with festive, family-friendly Halloween decorations, so enjoy the sights of the Halloween season while visiting the animals. Be sure to ride the carousel and walk through the Happy Haunted Maze in the Children’s Zoo. The Dog House will also be on-site selling their full menu, including their famous, fresh battered cheese curds. Families can participate in North Shore Bank’s Zoo Scavenger Hunt, and the first 500 families to finish during each time slot can pick up a prize (while supplies last).”
Festivities for the NEW Zoo Boo run 3-8pm each day. The Adventure Park will be open for regular hours, 10am – 6pm, on all Saturdays and Sundays in October.
Regarding COVID precautions, the NEW Zoo website states: “To encourage comfortable social distancing throughout the Zoo, this year’s event will feature Timed Entries, with limited capacity for each arrival window.

Tickets will be available at the gate each day only if they have not sold out in advance or online.
