WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF)- Looking for something fun to do? Well it’s time for all things spooky and creepy. Boo at the Zoo is back for the season!

With Halloween right around the corner, it’s a spooktacular tradition that takes us back decades, and it’s returning to Oglebay again. It’s the 32nd year of Boo at the Zoo.

“It’s a family-friendly event, so it’s kinda mildly scary for everybody.”

Dr. Joe Greathouse, zoo director

Boo at the Zoo is all decked out with pumpkins and all things fun and spooky.

Part of this year’s is in broad daylight. It’s like a Zoo walk-through, but with an interactive scavenger hunt and a spooky train ride in the mix. And while you’re out and about, so are your favorite zoo animals.

“Folks are happier when they get to see the animals, in addition to taking part in the festivities.”

But that’s not all.

There’s also fun scavenger hunt prizes you can win and all the Halloween candy your kid can enjoy, a fun time for the whole family.

“So, you can really spend the entire day here with your family or in the case of Oglebay Fest, you can get the entire weekend and have a great vacation.”

Dr. Joe Greathouse, zoo director

Boo at the Zoo officially kicks off this weekend, and runs every weekend in October.

Just get your tickets on Oglebay’s website and come dressed in costumes if you’d like.
