Win a Family Membership to the Zoo

The Kansas City Zoo likes to boast that it offers “the most affordable fun in Kansas City.” And at $10.50 for an adult ticket and $7 for kids ages 3 to 11, the chance to see exotic animals from all over the globe — year round, in Kansas City — does come pretty cheap. But for an even cheaper — and by that we mean free — zoo experience, try your luck at our trivia game.

Thanks to Julie A. Neemeyer, the zoo’s director of marketing and membership, for providing the following questions.

1. In what year did the zoo last have a polar bear?

2. What animal was stolen from the Zoo in 1974 and found in the bathroom

at a gas station on Broadway?

3. What was the first project completed with the 2004 bond funds?

We’ll post the answers on Friday morning, so e-mail your responses by 3 p.m. Thursday to with the word “Zoo” in the subject line. Whoever correctly answers all three questions wins a 2010 Friends of the Zoo Family Membership, which gets two adults and their children or grandchildren into the zoo for free anytime they go between now and March 31, 2011. In case of a tie, we’ll draw a winner at random from among the names of entrants who submitted correct answers. Good luck!
