The Ultimate Zoo Experience
With gleaming brass, and 60 stunning, hand-painted animals, the carousel features four Texas favorites—the endangered whooping crane, the white-tailed deer, the Texas horned lizard, and even the jackalope. Each animal on the carousel is unique and the Texas natives are joined by a menagerie of real and imaginary animals like the white ostrich, a seadragon, the hummingbird, a tiger shark, and a polar bear. Two chariots, including a spinning “bird’s nest,” complete the collection of carousel rides.
Sitting on an island, the custom-designed animal carousel is one more way that generations of children will be able to make lasting memories, at San Antonio Zoo.
Open daily* during zoo hours.
