JACKSONVILLE ZOO AND GARDENS’ SPOOKTACULAR
Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens is renowned for blending the traditional with the new. While popular characters such as the
Gliding Ghoul will make a comeback, there are new additions including an expanded fear-inducing scare zone. For guests
seeking a milder experience, a Scaredy Cat necklace can be purchased to signal a toned-down level of frights. Themed
elements such as the Phantom Forest, Pumpkin Hollow, Fall Festival, guarantee a memorable experience for visitors.
Known for its thrilling, creepy characters, haunting traditions, and themed areas, the Zoo has upped the ante for this year’s
Spooktacular. The scare zones are intensified, promising haunting sights around every corner and spine-chilling thrills. But
the event isn’t just about the scares; it’s also perfect for an unforgettable family experience where guests can dress in their
favorite family-friendly costumes.
DATES: October 13-15, October 19-22 and October 26-31. Members can get a first-preview on October 12, 2023.
