There's fun around every corner.


Wallaroo Water Play Area

Billabong Fountains NEW

The "Billabong" water play area in Wallaroo Station takes guests "down under" for an aquatic romp with enough water fun to make sure that your little one stays cool in the hot, tropical sun.

Manatee Fountain

Manatee Fountains NEW

Due to roaming werewolves, the Manatee fountains will be turned off during Creatures of the Night. Head to the Manatee Fountains near the Zoo's main entrance for a splashin' good time. This "splash ground" is situated among tall trees with plenty of benches for parents to relax while watching the little ones play.
