I’ve been planning this trip since I was in Kansas. When I realized the tickets I bought in June expired next week.
Little did I know it was going to rain today!
Last night before bed, I thought to check the weather like my usual self. (I alway try to be prepared).
Then decided not to since weather doesn’t fluctuate much in SoCal.
I woke up this morning and I heard the raindrops.
I had Bear call the park immediately to see how they operate under the weather conditions. Luckily they were open and the animals don’t mind the rain, they said.
It was up to the visitor’s level of comfort.
I was up for it, I figured it would be less crowded!
We pack extra clothes, three umbrellas, wore heavy clothing and headed down south.
The drive there was crazy. Thank god I was not driving.
When we got there it was sprinkling and it wasn’t too bad.
We walked around and headed to the Africa tram before our departure.
While waiting for the next tram to arrive, it started raining really hard but quickly stopped when it was our turn to get on.
The sun even came out and so did all the animals!
What a streak of luck!
We got to see all the animals, even the cheetah!
And of course it wouldn’t be complete without stopping by the gift shop to look for some panda stuff. Too bad it wasn’t cute enough to buy.
