Akron Zoo to introduce ScooterPals™


The Akron Zoo is now offering ScooterPals Fur-Wheelers™ for guests to rent during their visit to the zoo. ScooterPals Fur-Wheelers are full-sized seated electric scooters that are dressed as animals. There are five plush scooters available – a lion, giraffe, rhino, leopard and a black bear.

Adults, 18 years or older, can rent a ScooterPal at the zoo’s lemur building. Children over 36 inches in height are permitted to ride the plush scooter, but are required to ride with an adult. Cost for a rental is $5 and then $0.35 per minute.
