NEW Zoo Boo« Back to Events
The NEW Zoo (NE Wisconsin Zoo, that’s what “NEW” stands for) northwest of Green Bay celebrates the NEW Zoo Boo once again in 2020, adding precautions to help prevent any spread of COVID-19. It’s happening this year on the Friday-Saturday weekends of October 9-10, 16-17, 23-24, and 30-31 this year. 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. Also, as the NEWZoo site states regarding tickets this year: “To ensure comfortable social distancing throughout the Zoo, capacity will be limited during each evening of the event. Guests must purchase tickets in advance that correspond to the date and time you wish to attend. Each night, two different time slots will be available: a 3:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. slot and a 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. slot. Gates will close 30 minutes prior to each time slot’s ending, at 5:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. respectively. Tickets are available exclusively online at newzoo.org starting Friday, September 25th. Tickets are $12 per person; kids under 3 are free. Everyone aged 3 and above must have a ticket or a bar code (emailed after your online purchase) for entry. Tickets will be available at the gate each day only if they have not sold out in advance or online. Zoo Pass Members will receive one free ticket (per membership) on arrival, the same way as in past years OR Members can pickup your ticket in advance by stopping into the Zoo’s gift shop anytime during regular business hours, starting Wednesday, September 23rd. All other tickets needed by Members should be purchased in advance.”
