Lions and tiger and bears... Oh my! ZooBoo is a great place for the younger set to show off their costumes and have a ghostly good time. This year's theme is the The Wizard of Oz, and more than a few young ladies dressed as Dorothy for the occasion. A 15-minute version of the film screens throughout the day to help get the kids in the right spirit. There's an activity center, complete with a moon walk, as well as an obstacle course, and a hay maze. The tombstones include such gems as "Died from a bad hair day."

An indoor craft area gives kids something to do during inclement weather; if you play your cards right, you might score some candy as well. Of course, the animals are a big attraction; there's a special show by the dolphins, as well as an elephant "pumpkin smash." And for those who enjoy riding carousels backwards, this is the place to be. ZooBoo is highly recommended for munchkins six and under.
