Little Train of Horrors | Haunted Zoo

Haunted Zoo

Your Hometown Hutchinson Zoo is once again collaborating with the Hutchinson High School Thespian Club for our annual Halloween event.  

Get Tickets Here


  • October 27th, 28th & 29th, 2023
  • Friday and Saturday: 6pm - 8:30pm
  • Sunday: 6pm-8pm

As the sun sets and the moon casts an eerie glow, the zoo transforms into a realm of fright and fear. The usual laughter of children and the rustle of leaves are replaced by ghostly whispers and the haunting echoes of forgotten creatures. Prepare yourself for a spine-chilling adventure as you enter the mysterious world of our Haunted Zoo experience.

A special family-friendly space has been added for children under the age of 10. Tickets for this space do not allow entry into the rest of the Haunted Zoo. Your ticket will give you 30 minutes in the Family Zone. Participate in family-friendly activities without the spook factor.

If you would like to bring smaller children to participate in the family-friendly activities while older children attend the Haunted Zoo we recommend purchasing tickets with the same start time. This will allow the Haunted Zoo participants to meet you at the gate to the Family Zone at the same end time. 

The Haunted Zoo experience is approximately 30 minutes.

Ticket Pricing: 

  • Haunted Zoo: $6
  • Family Friendly Haunted Zoo: $3
