Inside Tracks Tour Program
Program Type(s): Adult, Corporate, Families, Groups

Get the Inside Tracks on a new experience at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. Join zoo staff for a unique 90-minute program that includes fun-filled facts about animal care, behavior and conservation. Inside Tracks will offer the opportunity to explore five animal areas to see how the zoo takes care of the animals. Some featured experiences may include training sessions and get close opportunities with animals, and a behind the scenes look at animal holding areas. Various areas will rotate with animal availability and weather. This is a fun and educational experience you don’t want to miss!
If you are planning to add Inside Tracks to your zoo visit, please be sure to wear closed toe shoes.
Tours are available year-round, Tuesday through Sunday.
We offer one tour time-slot per day that occurs from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. Register in advance or at the Box Office when you arrive if space is still available.
