We visited The Roger Williams Zoo Pumpkin Spectacular on Saturday October 19th 2013. We had purchased the buffet dinner for 25.00 that allows for front of the line entrance to the pumpkins. The buffet was good with hotdogs, hamburgers, turkey, mashed potatoes, mashed butternut squash, pulled pork, stuffing and squash soup. There was also soda, water, coffee, hot cider, hot chocolate and water. All the food was of good quality and while seating is a bit crowded we did not have any problem finding a seat at a picnic table. All items were refilled before they were empty.
We arrived about 5:00 and had no problem parking in the general lot. We had pre-purchased tickets and had no delay in entering the buffet. Once we had eaten we were then escorted into the spectacular again with no wait.
We left the event about 7:00 and the line to enter was huge. Cars were actually backed up onto the highway about 3 miles. While this is a nice event it is good to arrive early or the best suggestion is to purchase the buffet for 25.00 and have the front on the line access.
