Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Columbus is one of the biggest animal parks in the United States. The park was founded in 1929. In 2006 the park saw a massiv expansion, when the nearby theme park Wyandot Lake was acquired from Six Flags.

The zoo offers a wide range of animals shown in eight beautiful themed areas. The enclosures of the animals are typically large and species-appropriate. The park also offers a variety of up-charge attractions, like the theme park section Jungle Jack’s landing, where Ohio’s oldest roller coaster is located.

Fun Fact #1: Some sections of the park are actually older than the zoo itself. This is due to the acquisition of the nearby Wyandot Lake, which dates back to 1886.
