The pony ride experience will not be returning to the Lincoln Children’s Zoo for the 2024 season.

Although a beloved experience for many years, the decision to cease rides was made to ensure the best experience for the animals, guests, and staff. The Zoo expects to utilize the space for a variety of temporary experiences and general-use offerings as we work on the long-term plan for this space. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to the future of this area.

*If you have a membership package that includes pony rides, those pony rides will automatically be transferred to an equal value worth of train rides.
