CINCINNATI, OH (January 6, 2022) — March to the Cincinnati Zoo to save a waddle of cash during Penguin Days, presented by U.S. Bank, at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden! Visitors will enjoy discounted Zoo admission January 10 through March 11 and can see Penguin Parades Friday – Sunday at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. (and holiday Mondays) through the end of February.
“The Zoo is still a wonderful place to visit during the colder months, and the deeply discounted admission that we offer makes it a very affordable outing,” said Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard. “Dress for the weather, and you’ll be as happy as the penguins that you’ll see on parade days.”
The morning parade begins at the Zoo’s Bird House and ends at the Children’s Zoo entrance. In the afternoon, the penguins reverse the route and head back to their indoor habitat.
In addition to Penguin Parades, there will be special animal encounters on Saturdays & Sundays. It must be below 50 degrees for the king penguins to go outside, so penguin chats will be offered instead of parades on warmer days. A 15-minute penguin encounter with a rockhopper or Magellanic penguin will take place on each non-holiday Monday at 11 a.m.
Guests can warm up indoors while learning about insects, bonobos, manatees, nocturnal animals, monitors of all sizes, and reptiles. Gorillas will be visible in their indoor gorilla habitat!
The Cincinnati Zoo opens daily at 10 a.m. Starting Monday, closing time will be 5 p.m. Zoo admission is discounted through March 11. Plan ahead – purchase online and SAVE! For more information, visit www.cincinnatizoo.org.
