The Cincinnati Zoo is gearing up for a new season of live events.
Here’s what you need to know.
You’ll need to bring your own food to the zoo.
The zoo doesn’t offer free meals, but they do offer free lunchtime and weekend meals.
This includes hotdogs, pancakes, and cookies.
You can purchase a $1.99 lunchtime meal from the zoo’s concession stand.
If you have a large group, you can also order an additional lunch from a vending machine.
This costs $5.00 per person.
For more information, go to cincinnatikildashow.org.
The animals are all tame, which means they don’t bite.
The Cincinnati Zoo staff are not trained to deal with animals of any kind.
You may notice a few more signs posted around the zoo, which are more friendly than the ones you’ve seen elsewhere.
You should arrive before 6:00 p.m.
The Cincinnati zoo is closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays.
The first class of animals is the springer spaniel.
They arrive at the zoo at 10:00 a.m., and their first day of training is Friday.
You may need to be in person for your animal to see you.
The park does have a separate entrance and entrance to the visitor center.
The walkway to the animal exhibit has a rope.
To avoid being bitten, stay in the center of the exhibit and watch for your furry friend.
You might want to wear a mask.
The animal exhibit is a big part of the zoo experience.
If you have to wear your mask, don’t.
The exhibit is covered in a thin layer of black tape.
If your mask gets stuck on something, it may not get removed.
The Zoo does have outdoor seating for people.
When you enter the park, you’ll be greeted by an adult male, and you’ll see a sign for the walkway, which leads to a large open area.
Walk up to the small white sign that says, “Parking available.”
The sign says that you may park in the “walkway.”
You’ll see two signs on the walkways: one says “Walk,” and the other says “Parked Parking Available.”
If the walk is full, park in a large, well-lit space next to a fence.
You’re welcome to walk up to other animals if you want to talk to them.
Be prepared for crowds.
When the animals arrive at their first lesson, there are many people on the grassy area around the exhibit.
It’s a lot to take in.
If it’s a busy day, don: park at the entrance to a side walk.
If the animals are alone, walk up a few steps to a bench or a window that looks out over the zoo grounds.
If there’s a crowd, it’s best to be quiet and leave the animals alone.
The average admission price for a Zoo Pass is $30.
Cincinnati Zoo is an adult-only zoo.
There are no designated classes for children younger than six years old.
If that doesn’t seem like much, it is.
The city of Cincinnati spent $100 million to build and expand the zoo in the 1960s.
