Boo at the Zoo: not worth the money

Posted on: October 27, 2010

If you’re trying to decide whether or not to hit this year’s Boo at the Zoo, you might be interested in reader Katie’s review.

She wrote to tell me that she and her husband took their four boys on a weeknight recently and were sadly disappointed. In essence, she said:

  • It’s expensive. Even with three of their boys under 2 and free (she has triplets) they paid $14 to get in.
  • It was somewhat scary. Despite being touted as “non-scary”.
  • They saw no animals. At the zoo.
  • It was crowded. When they left at 7 PM, there was a long line of folks waiting to get in.

So take it for what it’s worth, but I know Katie in real life and trust her judgment. 🙂

Added: Leah left a comment stating that all St. John’s Mercy get into Boo at the Zoo for free on Sunday, so it will be particularly crowded then. Now you’re in the know! (Thanks, Leah!)

Thanks, Katie, for the info!

also FYI this Sunday afternoon (oct 31) ALL employees of St. John’s Mercy Medical Center can get in for free – so just know that and expect it to be very busy that day.
