The new Hogle Zoo exhibit you need to see

GTU Sponsor

For the past seven years, Les Schwab Tire Center’s has been committed to supporting the local community through its sponsorship of Salt Lake City’s number one most visited tourist attraction, Hogle Zoo. Les Schwab is continuing that sponsorship and since the start, Hogle Zoo has grown some of their exhibits in their Creekside play area, welcoming the new giraffe, lion, and zebra babies to the family. 

Les Schwab Tire Center’s is committed to providing not only the Best Tire Value Promise and world-class service to their customers, but also to supporting the communities. Their founder, Les Schwab, believed in supporting the communities where his employees live and work. They carry on that tradition today as local stores sponsor organizations and events that reflect the community’s interests.

This year, Les Schwab is sponsoring the Bugzillas! exhibit at Hogle Zoo for a limited time, now through mid-September. Les Schwab helps bring zoo exhibits to life and that is just one of the ways they give back to the local community. This exhibit is included with your zoo admission, and it is for bug lovers of all ages! Fourteen larger-than-life animatronic bugs are spread throughout the zoo and move and make noise. Don’t worry arachnophobes, only two of the 14 animatronic bugs are spiders. The rest are ladybugs, dragonflies, and other not-so-scary insects. This exhibit aims to teach kids and adults about insects.

Les Schwab is also excited to be a continued sponsor of the African Savanna and Creekside exhibits, so be sure to check those out while you’re there. 

As part of the Hogle Zoo sponsorship, this year Les Schwab will be distributing BOGO tickets and hosting radio remotes with giveaways at Les Schwab stores. You can visit any of the 26 Les Schwab locations throughout Utah to pick up a “Buy One Regularly Priced Adult Ticket, Receive a Child’s Ticket FREE” coupon today. No purchase necessary. See coupon for expiration date and restrictions. 

Local radio stations will also broadcast live from Les Schwab stores in July and August, where they will be giving away a limited number of free Hogle Zoo entry tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis, as well as other zoo-themed prizes. Over the past seven years, they have given away about a quarter of a million “buy one get one free admission” tickets. Their customers look forward to this tradition every summer and so do they!

While you’re there, be sure to take advantage of Les Schwab’s Free Pre-Trip Safety Check. They will check your tire’s air pressure and tread depth, and they will visually inspect your shocks, brakes and battery. All for free.

Make the Bugzilla! exhibit a part of your summer plans! Stop by your nearest Les Schwab store to pick up your Hogle Zoo BOGO admission coupon, today!
