Daring dads who accompany their kids to Knoxville Zoo on
Father's Day will receive free admission and a family adventure during the zoo's "Double
Dare Your Dad" event scheduled for Sunday, June 19.
Kids are encouraged to "double dare" their dads to have a wild time by riding a tiger (on the
zoo's carousel), get a tattoo, (a temporary one) or to peer into the open jaws of an alligator
(who has been preserved for posterity as well as safety)!
Visitors can learn all about the zoo's animal dads by taking part in the Double Dad Dare
challenge and have the chance to win a family zoo membership by identifying the oldest dad,
the dad with the most offspring, and other genealogical quizzes throughout the zoo. Dads
can take a break in the shade at the zoo's exciting new Animals in Action show and take a
double-dog dare when some very talented canines take the stage.
Dads will receive free admission with a paid child's admission on Sunday, June 19, 2011.
This offer is not valid with any other coupon or promotion.
