SALT LAKE CITY (Good 4 Utah) - If you love animals, you'll love this roaring good deal. Good 4 Utah's Viewer appreciation day to Utah's Hogle Zoo has been extended until Thursday. The discount gives zoo goers $4 off regular admission!
The Zoo’s latest attraction, the African Savanna features lions, giraffes, zebra’s ostrich & guinea fowl, all in a natural habitat.
“I like a lot of things that they've changed it's so different from even when I was a kid it's more natural looking and gives them more space and helps kids understand what their natural habitat is,” said Sara Mann from Spanish Fork.
Monday’s overcast and a little bit of rain didn't stop zoo goers either especially with Good 4 Utah's viewer appreciation day. “It was such a treat to be able to plan a day at the zoo and have great weather. It's terrific and we get the nice discount too, it's really nice, said Lois Gibbons.
In addition to the popular African savanna both adults and kids have their favorites! “The bird show... We come to the bird show... the first thing we come first thing we do is find out when the bird show is," said Matt and Susi Mahany visiting from Washington state.
With zoos now pushing towards a more natural habitat, Utah's Hogle Zoo is a great reflection of that after undergoing several makeovers the last few years. “It really is a brand new zoo because we've worked really hard to improve some of those habitats. There is still changes coming up, minor ones for now because the bulk of the construction is done for now,” said Erica Hansen, with Utah’s Hogle Zoo.
So far, whether it’s a first time visit or a return zoo lovers say they appreciate the changes and plan to come back! “This is our first time, it's all really beautiful, really new and great!” said Stacie Dorius.
