Behind the Scenes at Boo



Ever wondered what it takes to plan an event like Boo at the Zoo?

Just ask the folks from MITRE Corporation who worked tirelessly last week to create our Haunted House. From building plastic walls to hanging lights and decorating, these dedicated volunteers fashioned an attraction you can’t miss!

Volunteers from MITRE

And that’s just the beginning. Staff and volunteers also carved over 50 pumpkins for the lighted pumpkin path, added string upon string of spooky lights, set up fun carnival games and decorated many safe trick-or-treating stations for the kiddos to enjoy!

Thanks to everyone who dedicated so many hours to making this event a huge success! Visit the Haunted House and other attractions during Boo at the Zoo hours:

October 17-19 and October 24 – 26, 5:30 – 8:00 pm

It will be frightfully fun!

The Colorado Springs Thunder would like to send a personal thank you out to everyone who worked on getting the haunted house ready for Boo at the Zoo! We are lucky enough to be staffing the haunted house for five out of the six nights of Boo at the Zoo this year! I have personally worked all of the stations in the haunted house and therefore know first hand how everything is set up! You all did a fabulous job!! And again thanks go out to everyone at CMZ for letting the Thunder be a part of this year's Boo at the Zoo!!
