Roaring Springs is a new wild water adventure that offers visitors a new way to interact with the landscape and wildlife at the zoo. At the top of the ride, visitors can enjoy a full 360 view of the park, if only for a moment.

Prepare for a wild three-story drop

Take in the sights while you can, before you know it you’ll be taking a three-story plunge that’s sure to soak you and those viewing you from the bridge.

When you’re done with your adrenaline rush, you can visit with ZooTampa’s 1,300+ residents. The Zoo emphasizes endangered, threatened and vulnerable species from climates similar to that of the Tampa Bay region, with park areas devoted to Asia, Africa, Australia and Florida.

Meet giraffes, tigers, koalas and more

Where else can you go on African safari (giraffes!), wander through Down Under (koalas!), stroll the Asian gardens (tigers!), and watch manatees play, all in an afternoon? The newly anointed ZooTampa at Lowry Park, is one of Tampa Bay’s prized possessions.

And as an independent 501(c)(3) charitable organization, it feels good knowing every ticket purchased helps the zoo provide vital care, rescue and rehabilitation to threatened native Florida wildlife. In fact, ZooTampa is the only non-profit manatee hospital in the world and one of the only places that you can see these gentle giants year-round.

Open seven days a week, from 9:30am to 5pm daily, it’s easy to set a date for a trip to the zoo that fits everyone’s schedule.
