Nestled between the Children's Area and the Omaha Train Depot near the north entrance of the Zoo is an American tradition that continues to capture the imaginations of people all around the world. Thirty animals were added to Omaha's Zoo in the spring of 1999 and are covered in brilliant enamel instead of fur. For generations, young and old alike have been enchanted by the nostalgic beauty and magical charm of the carousel.
