Play Areas

Tree of Dreams

  • Wild Woods - Wildlife Explorers Basecamp

Whether you climb it or take the rope bridge, you can explore an ancient oak tree dripping with Spanish moss. Just what is a forest, anyway?

Polar Play Area

  • Northern Frontier

Get the scoop on polar bears from supersized illustrated storybooks, compare your height to our life-size polar bear statues, and then crawl into a polar bear den and pop your head up through ice holes.

Elephant Play Yard

  • Elephant Odyssey

Across from the condors at Harry and Grace Steele Elephant Odyssey is an open-air and hands-on play and exploration area for kids, and kids at heart. Kids can work off some energy with a maze of elephant satellite tracking collars, a play fossil dig, and puzzles to solve.

Please Note: While we work hard to provide an exceptional guest experience, occasionally wildlife habitats, tours, restaurants, transportation, entertainment or other services change or close without notice and without liability due to unscheduled circumstances.
