It won't just be penguins skating around the Memphis Zoo this winter.
The Zoo announced today that it will build an outdoor ice-skating rink, to open in November.
The rink, which will be located near what's currently a picnic area between Teton Trek and Northwest Passage, will be a semi-permanent exhibit open from November through the end of January.
Zoo spokesperson Abbey Dane says the idea was inspired by the ice-skating rink in Atlanta's Centennial Olympic Park.
"It's a huge success there," she said, "especially during the holidays."
The skating fee will be $6 with skate rental and $5 without.
