Mojo's Wild & Crazy Lagoon + GIVEAWAY [CONTEST CLOSED]

September 14, 2016

If you’ve been following us on social media, you know that Stanley the Giraffe is one of our newest friends to join us here at the Fair. He, along with the rest of his friends, has made Mojo’s Wild & Crazy Lagoon one of our favorite exhibits!
mojos Upon entering from the carnival side, guests will immediately be drawn to Fiona’s Jungle Perch where a colorful mix of macaws, parrots and cockatoos happily reside, chattering with each other and our guests. 
Their neighbors at Lemur Lair are always fun to visit. These Madagascar natives always seem relaxed and calm, no matter how noisy their feathered neighbors get.
Of course, the real attraction is just beyond, in The Grasslands. Here, guests will find themselves face to face with Stanley and our zebras, Barcode and Stripes. Did you know you can feed Stanley?

And Mojo the Capuchin Monkey rules over all from her post on Monkey Island, where she spends all day swinging from ropes, hanging from the top of her house and giving shows every day of the Fair.

Keep walking and you’ll encounter the scaly, slithery and slimy at Spike’s Reptile Territory, and any number of spiders, centipedes and other insects at Iggy’s Insect Encounter.

Mojo's crew is always happy to answer questions!

And last, but certainly not least, is the Enchanted Village where guests can see a Capybara, Coatimundi, Hairy Armadillo, Binturong, African Crested Porcupine, hedgehogs and a wallaby!
We  recommend checking Mojo’s Lagoon out twice: once before and after sunset.
You can see the animals best during the day, but at night, our whole exhibit comes to life as our nocturnal creatures become more active, Zor the Firedancer performs, and our Lagoon lights up with color.
And now it’s time for a Mojo’s Lagoon Giveaway!
