Eat, drink and be scary! Join us at Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium on Thursdays, October 13 and 20, from 7 to 10:30 p.m. for a frightfully fun version of Late Nights at the Zoo. Adults 21 and over can sink their teeth into local food truck cuisine and drinks at the most interesting cocktail hour in town.

Tickets for all dates are now available. To guarantee admittance, reserve your tickets now. Save $5 per event admission by purchasing online ahead of time! Admission prices increase at the door. You can also save time by pre-purchasing drink tickets online. Drink tickets can now be pre-purchased online with your event admission and you can pick them up at the ticketing kiosks throughout the Zoo. Additional drink tickets will also be sold on-site.

Each ticket to Late Nights at the Zoo: Halloween Edition includes one complimentary drink ticket attached to your event wristband, viewing of over 400 larger-than-life Halloween-themed lanterns in Bay Family Children's Adventure Trails, fire show performances by Omaha Circus Arts, live DJ, access to select Zoo exhibits after-hours, and the ability to purchase cuisine from local food trucks. Exhibit areas include Mahoney Kingdoms of the Night, the Suzanne and Walter Scott Aquarium and Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom Pavilion.

Costumes are encouraged at Late Nights: Halloween Edition, but the Zoo asks that everyone please dress appropriately. Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent. No costume-related masks should cover an adult's face, but health-related face masks are allowed.

All guests must be ages 21 and older and must bring a valid, state-issued ID to the event. No exceptions will be made for any reason, including infants.

Please note that Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is committed to taking the necessary precautions to protect the health and wellness of all staff, guests and animals. The Zoo has adopted the principals of a "healthy you, healthy Zoo."

Each Late Nights’ capacity is limited to 2500 total attendees and the last admission to the event is at 9:30 p.m. To guarantee admission, the Zoo recommends purchasing tickets in advance online.
