We had the opportunity to celebrate Halloween a little early, in a fun and safe environment, this weekend. Big C dressed up in her Spider-Girl costume for the first time as we headed to Lowry Park ZooBoo Kids opening weekend!
Parking: For this event, Lowry has two free parking lots and a $10 premium lot. The free lot on the property was filled. The premium lot, located at the front, is what we chose. The other free option is across the street, called the over-flow lot, which is not a far walk at all.
Photo-Ops: There are many fun photo opportunities throughout the zoo. So don’t forget your camera! You can pose with silly characters or find a fall scene. Little M wasn’t quite sure of this guy, but Big C thought he was pretty cool!
Rides: Throughout ZooBoo Kids, you’ll find lots of rides. A rollercoaster, bumper boats, carousal and more! The wait times were short, except for the bumper boats. There was only one working. Despite that, Big C waited patiently 20 minutes to ride it! Another favorite was the rollercoaster. She sure was a brave girl.
Trick-or-Treat: When you enter the park, you’ll receive a treat bag. ZooBoo Kids has several candy stations where we stopped to trick-or-treat.
Additional Activities: Some other activities you’ll find throughout ZooBoo includes face-painting, games, crazy corn maze, Scaredy Cat’s Fun House, a Monster Mash Dance Party and more!
Helpful Tips: Wear light clothing because it’s hot out! They also have a water area if you want to bring your bathing suit.
The free parking on campus fills up fast. So get there early or park in the over-flow lot. Otherwise, be prepared to pay $10 cash or card.
Big C (who is almost 5) did not need a stroller, but it was helpful for Little M who is almost (20 months).
