The party starts right at the box office. When buying two adult tickets, children up to 12 years old, who enters fully masquerade, receive a free entry. The scariest day of the year is about to arrive on November 1, the day of ‘Halloween’.On this day, the Lisbon Zoo opens doors to “all the ghost and witches for a day full of surprises and programs designed for the whole family.” The Zoo says in a news release that it will be in “Halloween mode” and the party will start at the box office soon: in the purchase of two adult tickets, children up to 12 years old who fully enter masquerade, receive a free entry. To make the day “scary,” the Zoo says, children will be able to take part in the ‘Monster-catcher’ production workshop in the family and a ‘creepy’ experience between 10 am and 5 pm, testing the kids and adults. In addition, the Zoo will be “dressed” strictly, with special emphasis on the Reptile, where it will be possible to walk a trail, which the Zoo promises to be “truly scary, with many spiders, bats and suspicious shadows.” Also, the animals will also be entitled to some surprises. According to the Zoo, environmental enrichment activities will be carried out, with the aim of stimulating the natural behaviours of the animals, in which the famous pumpkin will play the main role.
