Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium offers alternate ways to see the Zoo. Climb aboard the Omaha's Zoo Railroad and take a ride on the steam locomotive or get a new view of the Zoo from above on Skyfari , a ski-lift style ride. Travel back in time with a ride on Sue's Wildlife Carousel, an American tradition designed in authentic turn-of-the-century detail or sit back and explore the Zoo on the tram

All rides are weather dependent and will not operate if there is rain, snow, ice or if the temperature will not reach 50 degrees by 1 p.m. Skyfari will not operate if there are high winds.

You must be at least 12 years old to ride Skyfari without an adult. Children under the age of 12 will be required to ride with an adult.

You must be at least 42 inches tall to ride Sue's Wildlife Carousel without an adult.

Lozier IMAX® Theater

View a movie on a larger-than-life screen measuring 61 feet tall by 83 feet wide. That's as tall as four giraffe and as wide as seven rhinos. With such a large screen, there isn't a bad seat in the house. A six-channel high-fidelity sound system is heard through six speakers, each weighing 500 pounds or as much as a Siberian tiger. The seating area accommodates 358 viewers for 2D films and 324 for 3D.

Sue's Wildlife Carousel
