Costume Guidelines

While we encourage creativity, we also value safety and good judgement. Please take a moment to read over our latest rules and regulations:

  • Costumes must be family-friendly and may not be obstructive, offensive, objectionable or violent.
  • Guests who dress like characters may not pose for pictures or sign autographs for other Guests.
  • Costumes may not contain any weapons that resemble or could easily be mistaken for an actual weapon.
  • Costumes may not contain sharp objects, pointed objects or materials that may accidentally strike another Guest.
  • Adults may wear costumes but we ask that they be family-friendly (not gory or scary).
  • This event caters to small children. Adults may NOT wear masks that cover the face.
  • The Zoo reserves the right to ask adults to remove masks.
  • Guests who do not adhere to these guidelines may be refused entry into, and/or removed from, unless his or her costume can be modified to meet the above standards.
