Big Cat Valley

Home to a new habitat and our lions, Big Cat Valley allows guests to get face-to-face with these magnificent animals – making for an unforgettable, unique experience while visiting the zoo.

Part of the upgrade included filling the concrete moat with fresh soil which added 25 percent more yard space. Large, tempered and reinforced glass allows a new way for our guests to have a safe, up close experience. To add to this experience, guests will now be able to play tug of war with a lion. In a few weeks, with the help of animal care specialist during designated times, guests can test their strength against that of a lion.
