As you visit the Creation Museum’s Eden Zoo and petting zoo area, take the opportunity to experience a camel ride! Gomer and CJ, our friendly dromedary camels, are often available to give you a ride.
Riding a camel is quite different from riding a horse, the most obvious difference being the hump. But the hump is not the only difference! A camel’s height and special gait make camel riding a whole new experience. The camels will walk two laps for each ride and they will also be stopping for a photo opportunity along Pavilion 4.
Rides will run from 1:00–5:00 and will be open Monday–Saturday, with the plan to open Sunday rides Memorial Day weekend. Check our online event calendar to see whether rides are scheduled for a particular day and to verify times. If you have any questions upon arrival at the museum, be sure to check with a daily schedule or staff member.
Tickets are $8 per rider and can be purchased at Eden Zoo and petting zoo area. Price includes 6% Kentucky sales tax.
The maximum total weight of all riders is 250 pounds. Because weight distribution is important, low-weight riders can ride in front of the hump while others ride behind it. Because the safety of our guests is very important, all rides are subject to the discretion of the camel handler. The minimum height for a rider is 36 inches.
