    10:30 AM to 4:00 PM

    It is officially Polar Plunge time at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, where 500+ people will jump into frigid water on Saturday, February 16th! Don’t worry, they won’t be jumping into the polar bears’ pool – they will be plunging into a supersized swimming pool filled with ice cold water! So get your friends, family, and/or coworkers together and join us for some crazy winter fun to support a great cause.

    Immediately following the Plunge, Roosters will host the Post Plunge Party at Polar Frontier for all event participants and their guests, where they will enjoy wings and fries. In addition, Pepsi has donated drinks in support of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium and Special Olympics Ohio!

    Proceeds from the event will benefit Special Olympics Ohio. A donation will be made to the Polar Bear Conservation Fund on behalf of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium for hosting the event.
