Spooky Season at Newquay Zoo

Posted in Events by Lauren Webb on 3rd October 2022

Head to Newquay Zoo this Howl-o-ween!

With hundreds of animals and 13 acres of lush sub-tropical gardens to explore, you’re in for a spook-tacular time at Newquay Zoo.

Find all of your favourite species, from red pandas to penguins, lemurs to lynx, snakes to spiders, and discover rare and exciting new animals along the way.

Come along during the October half term and take part in free spooky activities every day from Saturday 22 to Sunday 30 October. Join our rangers for ‘Fact or frightful fiction’- the true or false game that aims to bust the myths around some of the more creepy species. Are you brave enough to play ‘Trick or don’t eat,’ the game featuring animals that are poisonous or venomous and the species that mimic them! Plus, enjoy fang-tastic animal talks during the day.

Get up close to some of the wonders of the animal world.  Encounter endangered and unusual creatures in the Wildlife at Night exhibition and investigate reptiles and amphibians in the Tropical House. There’s also a variety of outdoor play areas where visitors big and small can let off steam, along with animal talks and activities throughout the day.
