Jungle Jack's Landing is a separate area featuring more than a dozen rides, including a small roller coaster, spinning "tea party," and a log flume ride. Check the website for minimum height requirements for the rides - most are 36 to 44 inches.
Zoombezi Bay is a 22.7-acre (outdoor) water park, where visitors can enjoy 15 water slides, a wave pool, lazy river ride, and a kiddie play pool. The water park is open May through September.
The zoo's education staff offers a variety of seasonal camp programs for kids and families, including summer day camps for students entering first through seventh grade. Early registration for the seasonal programs begins in February.
