About Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium

The all-new Wildlife World Aquarium's campus-like design is unique with some 75 indoor exhibits featuring fish, mammals, birds, invertebrates, amphibians, and reptiles located in three recently completed buildings. Each building has a different title and theme: The Diversity of Life in Water; The Wild and The Wonderful; and Predators. Notable aquarium species include: black tip reef sharks, black-footed penguins, eels, stingrays, seahorses, barracuda, jellyfish, Nile and dwarf crocodiles -- nearly 150 new aquatic and semi-aquatic species in all. The total volume of display tanks, not including miles of plumbing and life support, several new water features, and a log flume ride, contain approximately 180,000 gallons of water.

There are also outdoor exhibits including the zoo's 5th ride attraction, a Log Flume Ride. Like its predecessors, the African Safari Train, the Australian Boat, and the idearc media Sky-ride, the flume ride is integrated into live animal exhibits. At 1500 feet long, the journey begins by giving riders a close up view of primate islands that feature spider monkeys and capuchin monkeys. Riders then enter a 20-foot long acrylic tunnel -- the largest section of acrylic ever installed in Arizona -- surrounded by South Pacific Reef fish. The trip closes by soaking riders as they plummet three stories into a splash pool.
