Spooktacular at the Staten Island Zoo

Spooktacular was Spectacular!


Spooktacular at the Staten Island Zoo

Spooktacular is one of the best Halloween events on the Island. This year Staten Islands Zoo annual Spooktacular was once again sold out. The entire zoo is transformed into a Halloween paradise. There were thrills, chills, and great entertainment for all. The Zoo was transformed into Candyland, Harry Potter, Finding Nemo, a Monster Fun House, Pirates of the Scareabeian, Thriller, Little Shops of Horrors, and much more. There was a great Transylvania production performed by the Wagner High School Theater Department.

My favorite was the Pirates, the line was worth waiting on. The children and adults alike were having a great time. One pirate jumped out and scared Elvis Duran of the Z100 morning radio show who was enjoying the events.


A special thanks to┬áthe many volunteer’s and┬áDeputy Borough President, Ed Burke who made this years event a Spooktacular one.
