Any visitors in town for the Super Bowl hoping to catch a glimpse of America’s only twin zoo pandas Tuesday are out of luck.
Zoo Atlanta announced Monday afternoon that it was not opening Tuesday “in anticipation of inclement winter weather conditions.” The news release made no commitment to the zoo opening Wednesday.
The zoo is one of the city’s largest attractions and surely would rather be open during maybe one of the largest weeks of tourism imaginable.
“We’re really excited about welcoming guests in town for the Super Bowl, and hope to see everyone a bit later in the week, as the week progresses, when we expect some warmer temperatures and some nice days,” said zoo spokeswoman Rachel Davis.
