Carousel rides

Party guests may have unlimited rides on the carousel during party time only. All party guest riders are asked to exit at end of each ride and get in line to ride again. This gives everyone an opportunity to ride their favorite animals! The carousel building and rides are open to all Zoo visitors; the party room is private.

Refreshments
