The Louisiana Swamp Exhibit recreates the culture and wildlife of a 1930s Cajun settlement. The Swamp Train takes passengers on a tour of the zoo. Guests may go for a whirl on the Endangered Species Carousel or climb the 44-foot-tall Kamba Kourse ropes course. A Sky Tykes rope course is available for children ages 2-7.
