Penguin Palooza

Even the Cincinnati Zoo is jumping on the cost-savings bandwagon and their “Bundle up and save a bundle” slogan tops their latest press release about Penguin Days.—-

“March to the Cincinnati Zoo and save a waddle of cash,” says the press release. “Experience cooler prices and even cooler animals during Penguin Days, with half-price Zoo admission every day and special animal encounters every weekend,”

Jan. 5 – Feb. 28 admission is half price. With regular admission of $13/adults, $9/children & seniors (2-12, 62 ) and children under two are free, 50 percent off is a pretty good deal. .

“Every Saturday and Sunday, guests can watch penguins, polar bears, snow monkeys and even elephants enjoy the winter weather in their own way during a variety of animal enrichment activities,” the press release continues.

And there are other regularly scheduled activities, too.
