Attractions, Feedings, & More

All aboard! Grab your little ones and hop aboard the Zoo Train! Take a ride on a historic CP Huntington electric train that takes zoo goers by our Zoo Pond, South & North America Exhibit, the Zoo Veterinary Hospital, Otter Exhibit, and Australia Exhibit. All proceeds from the Potawatomi Zoo Train go directly toward building new exhibits or improving existing habitats at the Zoo. Daily operation is weather permitting.
Choose your favorite animal and take a spin on the Potawatomi Zoo Endangered Species Carousel! Our carousel features 18 unique, one-of-a-kind, exotic animals. Each animal is hand-crafted and hand-painted by skilled artisans. Carousel animals include many of the species found at the Potawatomi Zoo – including a zebra, lion, leopard, tortoise, and painted dog. Our carousel also includes rare and endangered species from around the world and one ADA-accessible chariot with seating for two. Each animal comes with a message of conservation. The carousel is open from 10:00 a.m. until the last ride at 4:45 p.m. Proceeds from carousel rides support Potawatomi Zoo’s mission. Daily operation is weather permitting!

Get up close to your favorite barnyard buddies! Stop by our feed machines so our goats and donkeys can eat right out of your hand! Animals may be viewed during the entire Zoo season, and are a delight for children and adults of all ages! Just make sure you don’t feed them any outside food!

Have a unique experience hand-feeding our American bison, the nation’s largest land mammal!

Feeding sessions are Saturdays and Sundays at 2 p.m. They last approximately 20 minutes and each session is limited to 6 participants.

Tickets are $15 per person, and each person feeding the bison will receive a wristband. Only wristbanded people will be allowed within the feeding area. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult over 18 (the adult does not need a ticket. They can observe and photograph from right outside the feeding area).

Bison feeding will take place rain or shine. Tickets are not transferable to a different session.
