Spooktacular at Staten Island Zoo in New York City October 22 – 23!

Spooktacular is an annual Halloween festival for kids that is held every year at the Staten Island Zoo in New York City. If you are looking for an excuse to get on the ferry and spend some time on Staten Island, this event is the perfect way to escape the Manhattan Halloween crowds and entertain your kids. Spooktacular is an evening event that is great for school-age kids – they can walk down spooky cornfield paths where they will run into ghouls, ghosts and werewolves. They can also sing along with a zombie band, play spooky-themed games, and compete in a costume contest. While you’re in the city, check out are first class accommodations and some of the many New York attractions we offer!

Step back to the days when glory and valor began at the tip of a lance with the Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. You’ll be catapulted back centuries ago for a real medieval tournament featuring six knights as they compete in a variety of events – including the joust and sword fight – until a champion is crowned. While the lances glance off of armor in the arena, castle guests will take part in a four-course banquet – less the silverware to make the experience authentic and fun. This exciting dinner and show, located in Lyndhurst, New Jersey, is sure to be the highlight of your Big Apple adventure!

Spanish, Japanese, German and Chinese are a few of the languages your tour guides at Gray Line, New York can offer you as part of the Foreign Languages City Tour. Throw in a ticket to the Statue of Liberty Ferry and you have the Foreign Languages City Tour and the Statue of Liberty Ferry. The tour takes you both Uptown and Downtown. You will see Central Park, Harlem, SoHo, the Empire State Building, the United Nations Building, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Time Square, Battery Park, Rockefeller Center and more of New York’s famous sites and attractions from the seat of a luxury motor coach. Later, on your own time, you can board the Ferry to Staten Island and the Statue of Liberty.

Take the hassle out of planning your Big Apple vacation and start enjoying it today with the New York CityPASS.

  1. Perfect time for a spooky weekend at the Zoo. Though Staten Island Zoo may be the smallest, it’s definitely my favorite.

  2. Staten Island would be a great trip in itself. Getting the be-jeepers scared out of you, in a safe way, would be an extra bonus!

  3. What a spooky yet neat experience! The Staten Zoo at Halloween and corn mazes would be very enjoyable for the whole family!

  4. This looks like so much fun! Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I will definitely have to look into this furthur!
