Lowry Park Zoo has lots of cute animals to go with its two fountain areas. The Manatee Fountain sprayground near the main entrance sits among tall palm trees with plenty of benches for parents to relax while watching the little ones play. The Billabong Fountains water zone in Wallaroo Station allows for watery frolicking "down under."
Older, and braver, kids and adults will enjoy getting wet on the Gator Falls log flume ride. It comes with raging waters, a treacherous 30-foot drop, and hungry alligators waiting for you at the end. Riders must be at least 42 inches tall. Children under the age of 6 must be accompanied by an adult.
