Chicken Drop

Chicken Drop Wahoo's Lounge-1
Thursday nights belong to Wahoo’s Lounge and their World Famous Chicken Drop – for sure! Doug and Noele are great hosts/owners – energetic and super friendly, and have continued with the grand old Chicken Drop tradition. The Chicken Drop is quite famous after international film productions have catapulted it across the screens of millions over the years.And how does it play out you may ask? Well, you pay for a ticket which corresponds to a number on a huge board on the ground surrounded by a net. The price ranges from $1 to $10 depending on the game. A (well-fed) chicken is brought out and after a hilarious ritual of a gentle shake and … (you have to be there to see it, we can’t give EVERYTHING away) the chicken is placed onto the board inside the fenced area. After a while, well – everything you put in at some point must come out.

If it comes out on YOUR number – wahoo! – you are the winner! It’s a lot of fun – the prize is either $100 up to $1,000 depending on the game. So, if you’re the betting kind, you should definitely try your luck. Even if you don’t win, the experience is well worth it!

About the Author: Tamara Sniffin

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
