Hungry Human Hippos on Ice

Join DC Fray and The Wharf for a fun-filled afternoon on the ice as we bring the iconic kids game to life with Hungry Human Hippos.

Teams of four to eight people compete in a bracket style tournament to advance to the finals by sending your “hippo” out to gather “food” balls while the rest of the team gets them in your basket. The team with the most food at each round wins and advances on for their chance at Hippo glory. Costumes encouraged—get your Hippo on!
