Throughout the day, guests can check out Wildlife Shows, watch the Red Diamond Sea Lion Splash Show, experience Predator Zone, enjoy a “keeper meet and greet” in the reptile building and much more. Don’t miss the chance to take a ride on the Jane H. Brock Soaring Safari Zipline Adventure located in Alabama Wilds!
