Holiday Activity Alert; Haunted Safari at Henry Doorly Zoo
This time of year is prime for seeking out activities themed for the season, all ages, and that truly have a fun appeal for everyone. The zoo we have here in Omaha is already ranked world class, and many events and exhibits that are already here are totally awesome. The Haunted Safari is coming up October 10th and 11th, and includes a hot dog supper, playing ghost-themed games for candies, and roasting marshmallows in true Halloween adventurer or camping tradition. This event is located in the Wildlife Safari Park off I80 at exit 426 near Ashland, a perfect outdoor and sprawling setting.
This area right between Lincoln and Omaha is in a perfect location for families driving up to the spooky event from either city, and this is one of the most lush and scenic areas in Nebraska. Dressing warm will definitely be of high priority for this, as you don’t want to end up uncomfortably cold and chilly! Exploring prairies, wetland areas, and seeing things the way Lewis and Clark saw on their expeditions years ago will absolutely be much more fun in the haunted evening theme of this Safari. As harvest time arrives and the wolves, bears, and birds in this sanctuary are prowling around in the cool night air, this is the best time for the kids to daydream about the trick or treating they will do in a few weeks. It’s the perfect prelude to wet their appetite for more costumes, cemeteries, and frightening film viewing over the rest of this ghoul-themed month.
Tickets for this event are 15$ for Safari Park and Zoo members, and 20$ for non members. An ideal setting for a scary hike, and creating a family memory that will last a lifetime awaits here at this exhibition into the frightful night air. We all remember great seasonal classics such as “Its the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”; and this is one real life seasonal classic to add to your tree of family memories! A prime place for your kids to get to know others to play with, learn about the different animals in the park, and play “boo” to scare each other, it’s one of the highlights of this weekend. All seasons have their stand out activities as far as holidays go, but Halloween sure takes the cake (or the candy) as far as your little ones and their playmates will be concerned!
