Not for scaredy cats.
Sporting ghoulish make-up and costumes, seasonal staff and volunteers are spreading the word about spooky halfterm fun at the tourist attraction with a leaflet drop near you.
Spooky looks came courtesy of Dudley-based professional theatrical make-up artist Ryan Hesford who created ghouls, ghosts and a corpse bride for the event.
For younger visitors, Boo at the Zoo Week includes a family ghost night on Wednesday, October 27, with storytelling, trick or treat activities, mini ghost walks, wrinkly witches, and the opportunity to investigate creepy crawly corner. For adults (16+ only) there's a chance to learn about the mysteries of Dudley Castle and hear horror stories before visiting the Castle Asylum.
