CINCINNATI (WKRC) - You can enter to win a chance to put your name on the new Cincinnati Zoo carousel hippos and actually meet the bloat.
The carousel is now open.
“The new carousel is spectacular and includes a variety of animal seats. There are two hippos, and we know that people will want to hop on those. I rode the alligator during our staff preview spin, since that’s my favorite animal,” said Cincinnati Zoo director Thane Maynard. “Some of the carousel costs were covered by generous donors, and their names are on plaques on some of the animals. We thought it would be fun to open the hippo naming opportunity to the public."
Each $5 entry comes with a carousel ticket and $20 buys five entries and one carousel ticket. The winner gets a behind-the-scenes tour of Hippo Cove.
