Overall a fantastic time. Online purchasing and check in at the event was easy and quick. It was well organized, the story, wagon ride, and decor throughout the zoo was timed perfectly. It was spooky, enough to frighten kiddos and adults, but not terrifying so...More

The people were very nice and it ran on time and was organized. It really was fun.....I would suggest it was geared for 6-10 year olds. In my opinion...it could have been way scarier and more props throughout the ride..

We visited the Halloween headless horseman event with my small grandson and it was great! It was early in the evening and it wasn't too scary. Perfect for some family fun and friendly service.
