The Zoo Train and Conservation Carousel are popular attractions at Henry Vilas Zoo. On summer weekend days, our team of volunteers welcomes as many as 2,700 customers to enjoy these nostalgic amusement rides. While riding the Conservation Carousel, Zoo guests encounter 36 hand-carved carousel animals that are all endangered species. They also see amazing murals of animals of the world and scenes from the Madison area. While riding the Zoo Train, guests enjoy a sneak peak at the giraffes, rhinos, the Zoo Barn,and Children's Zoo exhibits including our red pandas and baby alpaca.
Carousel and Train Ride Sponsorships allow us to offer free rides to Zoo guests for the day. This is a great way to connect with zoo-goers of all ages, and provides a wonderful gift and special treat to families that wouldn't normally be able to enjoy the rides. Sponsorship also offers you a way to reach Friends of the Zoo with your message. Our 23,000+ Facebook fans and 7,000+ e-mail newsletter subscribers will hear about your contribution along with the thousands of Zoo visitors in the days leading up to your Sponsorship Day.
