The Wildlife Carousel is open to the public! The Wildlife Carousel is a unique work of art, hand carved and painted. Many of the carousel animals are found in the zoo, and you can see the only armadillo known to exist as a carousel figure! Go for a spin and ride along to music from across the globe.

A portion of the proceeds from the Carousel helps fund the Zoo’s ongoing conservation efforts. Riders of all ages can have fun taking a spin and knowing that they are bringing hope to endangered species and wild habitats around the world!

Please note: A carousel closure can occur due to inclement weather.
