Name That City! — February 4, 2021

Here’s a review of the questions:

  1. What city did the Dundee explosion happen in?
  2. In what city would you find the world’s only underground zip line attraction?
  3. In what city did an event occur that ended college varsity boxing in 1960?

And here are the answers:

  1. Omaha, NE—Near the end of World War II, a Japanese balloon bomb exploded in the Dundee neighborhood of Omaha. Today, a plaque commemorates where the bomb exploded and sits surrounded by the neighborhood’s trendy restaurants, bars and shops.
  2. Louisville, KY—The zip line courses are located in The Mega Cavern, a former limestone mine. The Mega Cavern boasts over 17 miles of underground passageways beneath the City of Louisville
  3. Madison, WI–In 1960, University of Wisconsin athlete Charlie Mohr, was hit hard in the ring. He was taken to the hospital, where he was operated on by a neursurgeon. He was in a coma for more than a week and on Easter Sunday, April 17, 1960, he died.
