OKLAHOMA CITY - A fan favorite from the 80s and 90s at the Oklahoma City Zoo is back.
We are talking about camel rides. For the next few months, you can pay $6 to take them for a spin.
Bill, Mongo - AKA 'The Gronkowski of Camels' - and Fred are visiting the Oklahoma City Zoo and quickly becoming fan favorites.
On a busy Monday, when most local kids are on spring break, they're lining up to take a ride.
The trio of camels is here from JK Animal Adventures in Missouri. If that name sounds familiar, they have been at a number of events in Oklahoma for years, including at the Oklahoma City Zoo in the 80s and 90s.
So, what are they doing back? It all started with a trial run back in October of last year.
"We wanted to see how they would do with the weather and how the crowds would react to them, and it was a great overall experience for everybody, so we brought them back this spring," said Candice Rennels, director of Marketing and Public Relations with the Oklahoma City Zoo.
After a few days of successful rides, the reviews are in.
"It was so wobbly, I felt like I was gonna fall off," said Yara.
"But, it was worth it," said Lena.
"It was worth a try. Try new things, and your life is better," said Sophia.
The rhinos have moved to Sanctuary Asia - so Bill, Mongo and Fred are in their old enclosure for now.
Rides are open to people of all ages, but children under 6 need to be accompanied by an adult.
