Be sure to bring your own treat bags!

Trick-or-treat trail
Costume contests
Mystery animal encounters
Education Stations: Learn about creepy crawly critters and the importance of purchasing treats made with sustainable palm oil.
Animal enrichment
Terrifyingly tasty treats, including mini cider donuts, caramel apples, and hot apple cider, are available for purchase at the GiddyUp Grill.


This Halloween (and every day) look for candy made with certified sustainable palm oil.

Palm oil plantations are wiping out animal habitats, and from snacks to soap, palm oil is the most widely consumed vegetable oil on the planet.

Check out Cheyenne Mountain Zoo's palm-oil friendly candy guide(opens as a PDF) for some sustainably sweet treats for your tricksters!

Learn more about the palm oil crisis and how to shop responsibly.
