Halloween Activities for school groups, play groups, and scout groups.

Howl-O-Ween Harvest

Trade those ghosts and goblins for guinea pigs and geckos. “HOWL-O-WEEN” is a great opportunity to get up close and personal with some of our “spookier ” animals and learn why they aren’t so spooky after all. You may even get to see some tricks, or feed some treats. Then, journey into our team-building tricky temple and work together to solve puzzles and riddles of Howl-O-Ween Harvests past. At the end of your autumn adventure, pick a mini pumpkin from our pumpkin patch to take home. Wear your costume, or enjoy our animals in theirs. Perfect for school groups, play groups, and girl scout troops.
