Treat Bags

NEW this year! To eliminate lines and make our annual Halloween at the Zoo a more fun and stress-free experience for all, we have eliminated individual treat stops and will instead be focusing on our many other activities (see above for a list).

We will have treat bags (each filled with 1lb of candy) available for purchase. More info soon!

Orangutan-Friendly Halloween Candy:
As part of our committment to animal conservation, Henry Vilas Zoo ensures all candy served at Halloween at the Zoo is made by companies that are members of the Roundtable On Sustainable Palm Oil. You too can support these companies committed to making a difference for wild orangutans and other endangered species by using certified sustainable palm oil that is deforestation free. Check out a complete list of orangutan-friendly Halloween candy, courtesy of Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, here.
