Can you believe it? It’s finally Halloween! Before joining in all the fun of trick or treating tonight, you might want to make a quick stop in JumpStart. After all, there’s not much time left to enjoy all the frighteningly fun festivities that we have to offer!
The Fall season, not only brought you the arrival of the new and permanent Madagascar area, but you may have even noticed the addition of a few familiar FunZones, filled with daunting dark corners and a few spooky specials. Before the Halloween season comes to a close, slide through the BoardWalk’s Haunted House or Zip through DownTown’s Mummy Maze. We promise that these seasonal stops will have you screaming… for more!
However, if you’re look for more treats than tricks, don’t forget to finish up your scavenger hunt. If you work hard enough to find all the hidden cauldrons pumpkins and other petrifying pieces, your efforts won’t go unnoticed. Like with all of our scavenger hunts, you’ll be receiving a prize for completing this terrific task.
So, as we say goodbye to the season, what have been your most haunting Halloween memories in JumpStart? Were you able to pick up a new favorite pet or ride? Let us know!

Our loyal lemur friend Mort has stumbled upon JumpStart without his beloved King Julien! Although Mort feels lost without his lemur leader, he wants to join in the Madagascar fun with all of you Jumpeez by playing hide and seek with you.
Once you click on Mort’s Hide N’ Seek booth, he will hide somewhere in Italy. You might think that you would never find Mort because he is so small, but it’s okay — he will leave you clues!
He can hide anywhere from the cool Zoovenir cannon to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, so make sure to look really carefully for our little lemur buddy. This game will definitely get you thinking, because all of the clues that Mort gives you as you play the game are riddles.
How good are you at solving riddles? If you were Mort, trying to play hide and seek with one of your fellow Jumpeez, where would you hide in the Madagascar Italy Habitat? Let us know what you think about Mort’s Hide N’ Seek, and tell us all about your ideas about where Mort might hide next!
