“We are proud to partner with the Cincinnati Zoo on this night,” said Cyclones Director of Marketing & Public Relations, Sean Lynn. “We have found these alternate identities to be a huge hit and the ability to partner with an iconic establishment such as the zoo is a home run. We’re looking forward to bringing the Hippos brand to life.”
