Home to over 2,000 animals and Indiana's largest aquarium, this 64-acre zoo has lions, elephants and other wild animals roaming through natural settings. A special petting area allows children to touch, but not feed, the tamer animals. There's also the world's largest enclosed dolphin show and a roller-coaster for all ages to enjoy.

Have always had a fun time at the zoo. My grandchildren love it and enjoy the feeding of the birds and other animals. There is so much to see and do and the animals are up close so you can really let them entertain you.
