Evening Pokémon GO Lure Party at the NC Zoo



Published:

The NC Zoo is having a Pokemon GO Lure Party this Saturday, Sept. 17, from 4 to 7 p.m. Admission is $5, and proceeds will go toward the zoo’s conservation efforts. Lures will be placed at some of the 52 Pokestops located throughout the zoo. Find the lure, and you may meet some of the North Carolina Zoo’s program animals, weather permitting.

In addition to having 52 Pokestops, the zoo is also home to eight gyms where party participants can train and gain experience. The zoo is also the perfect spot for walking to hatch those eggs with the zoo’s five miles of walking trails.

Rare Pokémon are often seen at the zoo, along with water, electric, rock, grass, fire, ground, psychic and fighting Pokémon.

Wi-fi is provided at the zoo and is strong in the North America plaza, but may be limited in the park due to high demand from guests. Cell-phone coverage varies by provider. Portable battery chargers are available in the zoo’s gift shops.

The North Carolina Zoo is a family-friendly place to collect Pokémon, but please respect the natural space, the safety of other guests and animals, watch where you walk, and stay on the trails. Please note that some exhibit buildings will be closed, and animals may be off exhibit.

Here’s an event schedule:

4-7 p.m. Look for lures that will be set throughout the park.
