I think I know the answer too this... But.. My parents, and my family of 4 are going to the tailgate tour tonight in Omaha.. My kids are 5 and 2... But really the food from the zoo is nothing special. Burgers, Hot Dogs and really over priced.. This morning my wife asked if we should bring a pizza to eat... My initial response was no I dont think that would be a good idea... But am wondering what is everyone else take on this? I got a pretty good idea..
we'll be there eating whatever jp and the coaches are eating -- not going for the food
FYI the last 2 years the food has been the Zoo just opens up one of the concession stands by were all the activites are held.. So it is free to get into, but you buy the food from the zoo concessions...
The zoo closes at 5 but the gates will stay open for people coming to the event. Just say you are there for the tailgate tour and they will let you in for free (not sure how early you can show up and still get in for free). The buildings stay open until 6.
They hold the event in the plaza between the IMAX and the Desert Dome. Can't miss it. They will keep a concession stand open so you can purchase food if you want. Very limited menu and pricy. No one will say anything to you if you bring in your own food to eat. Especially if you have children.
Very family friendly event and a lot of fun for the young ones. Hope they are ready to get up in front of everyone and help Cy lead a cheer for the Cyclones!
