Halloween Night Party @ Tobu Zoo | MIYASHIRO

October 27, 2018 @ 15:00 - October 28, 2018 @ 20:00

Tobu Zoo Halloween

Tobu Zoo Halloween 2018 – On the nights of October 27th and 28th Tobu Zoo is holding its annual Halloween Night party with lots of different events.

Until 2016 children aged between 3 and 6 years old who come in costume were permitted for free. Since last year, 2017, it seems to be anyone who arrives after 3 pm in costume will get into the hybrid park for free. You have to be in proper costume though; a halloween hat will not suffice! They stipulate that the costume must have a minimum of two pieces. They have the rest of the conditions on their website.

Tobu Zoo will start their light up on the 28th this year. It is only available on weekends, bank holidays and a couple of other special dates. You can witness the winter illumination, Kanto’s largest, from around 5 pm and it will run until closing time, which is extended to 8 pm during the illumination and Halloween season. From December 23rd to 25th the illumination and the zoo run until 9 pm. The winter illumination will run until February.
