ITINERARY
--------------------

Africa Tram: An exciting expedition with brightly colored tour vehicles and our diverse animal collection creating a relaxing adventure. The ride path takes you around some of the field exhibits, giving you a chance to connect with the animals on a closer level.

Cheetah Run: Witness the fastest land mammal up close and personal doing what it does best: run! During Cheetah Run, watch as the sleek cat races on a straight 330-foot-long track that allows it to really stretch its legs and reach maximum speed of about 70 miles per hour.

Conservation Carousel: For kids and kids at heart, our colorful Conservation Carousel features 60 ride elements to choose from, many of which replicate rare and endangered animals. You can ride a giraffe, rhino, zebra, cheetah, and more—which will be your favorite? $3 per person for one ride or $6 per person for an all-day wristband.

Lorikeet Landing: Watch our colorful rainbow lorikeets swoop down to enjoy nectar offered by guests. Exhibit entrance is free; lorikeet food is available for purchase to experience the thrill of feeding these birds by hand.

Robert the Zebra: If you've ever wanted to have a conversation with a zebra—or even if it never crossed your mind—this is your chance! Robert the Zebra lives in digital, animated form on a large screen, where he can see the people who have come to visit. He asks questions, cracks jokes, talks about zebra life, and is very curious about humans. Chat with our interactive digital zebra in the Park's Discovery Station Amphitheater.

Fisher-Price Samburu Jungle Gym: Kids love to climb and explore in this safari-themed play area; parents love the shade-covered picnic area! Located below Benbough Amphitheater.

Discovery Station: This kid-friendly area is filled with musical instruments, puppets, books, craft activities, and wildlife "toys" and is designed to give children and their adult companions a playful space for animal-themed fun. Educators facilitate learning and activities every day during Park operating hours. You can stop by for an impromptu animal presentation or do a stone rubbing of your favorite animal footprint.

Frequent Flyers Bird Show: Watch as our avian stars soar over your head and perform other feats that showcase their amazing natural abilities! Located at Bird Show Amphitheater, between Gorilla Forest and African Woods.
