The 2016 Halloween Event is a limited time event in the game that occurred from the 20th of October to the 4th of November 2016.
The event, being the first event ever in Rodeo Stampede, did not feature any drastic changes in gameplay. However, music (stampede and zoo), zoo appearance (sky changed to night, rain added), crate appearance and mechanisms and the appearance and lighting of islands and obstacles changed to be Halloween themed. Crates were the only change in gameplay, with approximately half of all crates that the player smashes being 'treats', where the amount of coins is doubled, and the other half being 'tricks', with green smoke rising from the smashed crate and obscuring the player's view temporarily. The crate's appearance, which switched from a smiley pumpkin cube to a skull, did not affect the result.
What was new about the event was the introduction of four 'spooky' new regular animals, which were released for Halloween but are permanent and can be befriended at all times.
|Animal||Species||Unlocked||Distance Found||XP Given|
|Ostwitch||Ostrich||Savannah 2||> 1300m||14|
|Slimenoceros||Rhino||Jungle 3||> 1300m||10|

- The Halloween Event received some backlash over how the lighting, particularly in Savannah, was too dark and difficult to play in.
