4 the Weekend: Camel rides and hot rods

OKLAHOMA CITY – Fred, along with his friends Mongo and Bill, are part of a new exhibit at the Oklahoma City Zoo: camel rides are now open.

For just $6 you can hop on and take a camel for a spin…with the help of their handlers, of course.

The smallest riders will need an adult to ride with them.

So far, the camels are a big hit.

Fred, Mongo, and Bill are located right next to the pachyderm building. Close by, another new exhibit: alpacas.
