Haunted attractions have long been a staple of San Diego, but they’re no longer the only attractions in town.
In fact, the city’s tourism industry is booming, and the San Diego Zoo is trying to expand its offerings, according to San Diego Economic Development and Tourism CEO Michael Ruedy.
Now, the zoo is hoping to bring its famed Pig Forge attraction to the city, and it’s taking a few steps to make sure that happens.
The zoo’s newest attraction, the Pig Forge, is scheduled to open to the public this fall.
Located at the zoo’s campus on the corner of Main and Park avenues, the attraction will offer a “Pig Forge” experience, where visitors will walk through a pig-filled, “pig house” that is powered by electricity.
The pig-powered machine can be used for everything from painting and cooking to “painting, carving and carving, carving,” Rueday said.
The Pig Forge will be open seven days a week, from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., according to zoo spokeswoman Emily Schott. “
So we want to be able to give people the ability to experience Pig Forge and see what it’s like.”

The park is not allowing pets or children under 12 to enter, and visitors can also visit the pig house without a pet.
The attraction will feature a “mascot” that will be “attached to a statue,” and it will be a “unique experience,” Ruey said.
The mascot will be able “to dance around, play with toys, interact with the animals, and perform other creative activities,” according to the zoo.
“It’s not a regular, ‘let’s go to Disneyland’ kind of experience.
The zoo is planning to expand the Pig Fortress and Pig Forge attractions to other parks in San Diegos parks, as well as other attractions in the zoo district. “
That’s really the core idea behind Pig Forge.”

The Pig Fortress attraction will be the second of its kind in the San Francisco Bay Area, joining the San Jose Zoo, Ruedey said.
Visitors can expect to see “some of the best Pig Forge in the world” when the Pigforge opens in 2019, according the zoo, and “there will be new attractions every day,” Rauh said.
Thats why, Rauf said, the pig-based attraction is not only a new addition to the San Diego area, but also one that “we are very excited to add to our entire San Diego footprint.”
It also comes at a time when “more and more families are coming into San Diego,” Rua said.
She said the zoo hopes to see the PigForge attraction “become a big part of their lives.”
“This is a great opportunity to give kids a fun, interactive experience that they can come visit and enjoy for their whole family,” Rui said.
Ruedi said the Pig and Forge attraction will also be the first of its type in the U.S. to feature a live entertainment show, which Ruede said “will be an integral part of how the Pigworks community engages with guests.”
Thats exactly what happened at the Zoo, where the Pig forge has been a popular attraction for years.
“When we started our Pig Forge experience, the only thing that we wanted was to provide a place for children to interact with animals and have an educational experience,” said zoo spokeswoman Lisa Gavigan.
“And then we saw that it was really successful.
It really resonated with kids, and we were like, ‘Wow, this is really a great thing for us to have, and this is how we can continue to expand this experience.'”
“We are very proud to have this Pig Forge come to San Diegans,” Gavgan said.
With the Pig-Forge attraction, “the Zoo is really adding to our portfolio of Pig Forge experiences,” she said.
In addition to offering a Pig Forge at the San Bernardino Zoo, the San Bernadino Zoo and the Petco Zoo, in the Bay Area and in other cities, the Zoo also has the Pigfence on display at its campus, where it is located next to the Zoo’s famous zoo exhibits.
“Pigs are so amazing, and there’s no doubt in our minds that this is going to be the best pig experience you can have in San Bernardino,” Rufe said.
