Be the first to ride the Giraffe Slide!

After nearly one year, Zoo Boise is excited to announce the installation of a brand new giraffe slide, opening this Friday, March 18th!  The original giraffe slide was built in 2000 and after millions of rides it needed to be completely replaced.

One lucky member of the community will have the chance to be the first rider on the new giraffe slide this Friday, March 18 at 3:00pm.  Friends of Zoo Boise is now running an online auction.  The highest bidder by 3:00pm on March 17 will win the right to be the first rider on the giraffe slide, a gift certificate for a Giraffe Encounter and an Annual Pass to Zoo Boise.  Members of the press are invited to see the opening of the giraffe slide at 3:00pm on Friday.

Proceeds from the auction will support the Zoo with a New View Capital Campaign to expand the zoo and further broaden the zoo’s conservation efforts.
