Pre & Post** Trips
Kick off this year's conference the right way at Zoombezi Bay, the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium's amazing waterpark! Included is entry to both the Zoo and Zoombezi Bay, transportation to and from the hotel, Zoomband fast passes, and access to private cabanas for the day. Catch some sun at the Wild Tides Wave Pool, sip on a refreshing beverage while floating around Croctail Creek, or seek some thrills on one of the many waterslides.
The Wilds is situated on nearly 10,000 acres of reclaimed surface-mined land in southeastern Ohio. The facility is home to rare and endangered species from around the globe living in open range habitats. The Post Conference trip will consist of an open-air tour bus through pasture, veterinary hospital tour, rhino barn tour, and carnivore area tour. Lunch will be held at the outpost, with a giraffe feeding and rhino training demonstration. The tour will conclude with a trip to the gift shop.
