Everyday at the Fort Worth Zoo, watch a real-life mystery unfold before your eyes during the new Wild West stage show, "Lone Star Mystery" featuring none other than the Zoo's animals! Located at the Outdoor Learning Theatre, outside of Texas Wild!, Zoo visitors can enjoy the show four times a day: Monday – Friday at 11 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.* (*making of Lone Star Mystery) and Saturday - Sunday at 11 a.m., noon, 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. With the help of the Zoo Bureau of Investigation and its four-legged (or winged) agents, guests can help solve this fascinating mystery! Keep an eye out for the crime suspects including animals from around the world, and of course, those native to Texas.
For the curious kids (and parents) that want to see the Fort Worth Zoo behind-the-scenes, check out the daily Wild Encounters with the zookeepers! With more than 20 encounters, this is an amazing opportunity to gather facts and stats about your favorite animals! For example, at Asian Falls where the elephants roam, you can learn that the elephant exhibit pool holds 3,200 gallons of water-perfect amount for the pachyderms to cool off and keep their skin moist. You might event catch Casey, the Zoo's adult male Asian elephant taking a dip! Encounter Schedules are subject to change, so visit the Zoo online before your visit!
Of course, both of these shows are free with Zoo admission, so grab the little ones and head out on a Zoo safari! Learn more family fun activities and things to do by visiting FortWorth.com/FamilyFun.
