Make smart shopping choices this HallZooween!

Animals like the Bornean and Sumatran orangutans are critically endangered species due in part to the palm oil industry.  Palm oil is used in many of the foods and products we consume every day from frozen vegetables to shampoo. Oil palm plantations are spreading across Indonesia, which produces 85% of the world’s supply of palm oil, often to the detriment of its rainforests and wildlife. As consumers, we can choose to buy products made with sustainable palm oil as certified by the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). Below is a helpful guide for purchasing candy made with certified sustainable palm oil.

Costume Guidelines

While we encourage creativity, we also value safety and good judgement. Please take a moment to read over our latest rules and regulations:

  • Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
  • Guests who dress like characters may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
  • Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
  • Adults may wear costumes but we ask that they be family-friendly (not gory or scary).
    • This event caters to small children. Adults may NOT wear masks that cover the face.
    • The Zoo reserves the right to ask adults to remove masks.
