Entering the Indonesian Rain Forest? Check out Dr. Diversity’s Research Station where kids can peer into microscopes, “dress” the part of a rainforest researcher, and size themselves up to an elephant.

On Tree Top Trail, children will find hands-on learning in tiger hut and get a squirrel’s eye view as they climb into the Kids’ Tree House.

Little Poof, our pint-sized toy train, is waiting for your budding conductor to climb aboard! Around the corner, visit the Indiana Family Farm where kids (of all ages!) can brush a goat, pet a calf, and meet a miniature donkey.
