Freaky Flights Tours – zip line, costume party, Halloween festival
Come zip with on the all new Freaky Flight Tours during the week of Halloween! These tours are really in the DARK. They will have no light of the moon to guide the way which will enhance the spookiness of the evening. There will be fun activities like a costume contest and pumpkin chuckin'! Dress up in a funny, scary or cute costume that can be worn with the ziplining gear and the staff will select a winner.

Boys and "ghouls" of all ages are welcome to this family-friendly event that features seven treat stations scattered throughout the Conservatory's biomes. Each biome will be decorated in a fun and spooky theme where staff and volunteers of the Conservatory will be in costume and handing out treats.
