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 taking visitors over giraffe, cheetahs and more. 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 . Guests can now take a humpback seat on a dromedary camel ride!
