The wet and wild, kid-friendly fun starts with a 750-foot lazy river and continues with a huge alligator water slide, spider monkey soakers, water-spitting snakes and more splash-worthy activities. Best of all, it’s right beside the animals inside Audubon Zoo.

So, bring your little animals to learn more about ours — and stay cool all summer long.
