Let your wild side out at our new Wild Creatures Playland right here at Fort Rickey Discovery Zoo. So what are you waiting for – it’s time to get wild!

Crawl through the 17,000 brightly colored balls in our enormous ball crawl, slip and slide down the spiral slide, and let off some steam with our Boppity Bag punching bags! The whole family can enjoy the fun and excitement of bouncing on our giant Jumbo Jumper Pillow Bounce, and just for fun, cool down with a family battle in our spectacular Water Wars game! Launch cold water balloons at your family and friends from the safety of your battle stations!

Families can bounce, crawl, and splash for the best in healthy family fun Central New York has to offer! Play in our Wild Creatures Playland then explore the animal park some more!

Playland Concession Stand

Family fun and food! Take a break and enjoy some snacks at the Playland Concession Stand. We serve hot dogs, cold drinks, ice cream, chips, and ice cold slushies!

Or bring a picnic and enjoy the shade in our convenient picnic area located right by the entrance.

Kids can jump like wallabies on our jumbo jumper!

We recommend bringing socks however, as the material gets pretty hot on sunny days.
