Come creep around ZooBoo at Tampaâ€™s Lowry Park Zoo; the zoo have announced details for the 15th year of the family-friendly attraction, including a new walk-through â€śhauntâ€ť titled French Quarter Phantoms 3D. The New Orleans-themed attraction promises to explore the â€śsecret and sinister side of one of the most haunted cities in America,â€ť a zoo news release said.
ZooBoo attractions are rated from one to seven â€śskullsâ€ť to indicate their intensity, with seven skulls being recommended for mature audiences and one skull being okay for small children.
This yearâ€™s ZooBoo features five walk-through haunts ranging from three to seven skulls, night rides, a specialty gift shop, and elaborate decorations throughout the park.
There are also a number of one-skull activities, such as the Little Beasties Bungalow filled with â€śnot-so-scary monstersâ€ť and the Spooky Fun Fair games area.
Children ages 11 and younger are permitted to wear costumes to ZooBoo.
As part of the zooâ€™s Zoo School educational program, a Zoo Boo Family sleepover is set for Oct. 12. Advance registration is required at lowryparkzoo.com/_education/register.html.
