Tubing hill added to zoo's 'Wildlights'


The Columbus Zoo & Aquarium will offer snow tubing for children ages 2 to 12 through the rest of the year.

A junior avalanche tubing hill was added to the Holiday Encounters Village starting Monday, Dec. 27, and will be open from noon to closing time through Jan. 1. The tubing hill includes two shoots down through which children could ride tubes; a $1 fee provides unlimited rides for the day.

Mad River Mountain provided the snow hill.

Wildlights also will feature a countdown for "Zoo Year's Eve," with an animated holiday light show. The shows will run every 30 minutes starting at 5:45 p.m. until closing time each evening.

Wildlights is open through Jan. 1 and runs from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 5 to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
