The Slawson Family Tiger Trek will open to members only on Saturday May 16 and Sunday May 17 followed by a ribbon cutting and grand opening to all guests Friday, May 22.
“This exhibit was designed to provide a natural setting representative of the tiger’s natural habitat. An open-air exhibit with a variety of viewing levels will allow the visitor to see these beautiful cats as they prowl, pounce, play and relax in a natural environment. It is, no doubt, one of the top tiger exhibits in the country,” said Mark C. Reed, Executive Director of the Sedgwick County Zoo.
