Adventure Trail | The Topeka Zoo

Adventure Trail


The Adventure Trail (open May-September and located east of the rainforest) is a must for all ages! It is a place for you and your family to have outdoor fun, learn new things, and to make memories. The Adventure Trail features:

  • Bird Feeding Aviary– A walkthrough interactive animal experience where zoo guests can feed trained lories and lorikeets that land on a guest’s hands to eat nectar or fruits! ($)
    Feedings at 10, 11, 1, 2 and 3.
  • Wildlife Theatre– Daily presentations featuring many of our zoo’s ambassador animals. Sit back and relax as our Theatre Crew enlightens you on the many wonders and facets of these amazing animals. Shows at 10:30 and 1:30.
  • Fun Play Area– Places for children to experience outside play that connects to the farm and nature, featuring a pedal tractor ride, natural play activities, mining sluice ($), and more.
  • General Store– Outside the Adventure Trail, stop by our general store for some snacks, souvenirs, or drinks to quench your thirst.

This annual attraction will open on Mother’s Day weekend and close after Labor Day, so come take a journey down the adventure trail!
