Cool Zoo opens for the season Sunday, March 29, 2015!
This year Gator Run, a new lazy river, will open as part of Cool Zoo. Gator Run is destined to be a summer favorite as it features a 750 foot lazy river with two sand beaches, lounge chairs, four water cannons, two water curtains and jumping jets. The lazy river is three feet deep and takes approximately seven minutes to make a round trip. Gator Run also offers a food cart concession area, outdoor seating, additional showers and restrooms. Rafts are free for all floaters and kids under 48 inches will need a life jacket (supplied by Audubon Zoo). Bring your own towel or purchase a new one in The Cool Shop!
Cool Zoo, a wild and wet splash park, is one of the top water parks in New Orleans and a hot spot for kids to cool down at Audubon Zoo. Highlights include Gator Run, a new lazy river, jumping water spouts, a huge alligator water slide, a spider monkey soaker, water-spitting snakes and more. There is also shaded seating, family restrooms, an expanded stroller area inside the splash park, a Snack N' Splash concession stand and The Cool Shop carrying a variety of summertime necessities.
In addition to Gator Run, the splash park offers three different splash zones with one area specifically for toddlers and younger kids. Cool Zoo is located beside the Gottesman Family Endangered Species Carousel.
