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!

Carousel Rules:
Children over 42″ tall may ride alone.
Each child under 42″ tall must be accompanied by an adult, who will stand next to the child as he/she rides for safety. (This adult does not need to purchase a ticket.)
No food, drinks or strollers are allowed on the Carousel.
There are no refunds for unused passes.
