The train at the Potawatomi Zoo is open again after being shutdown for a week as they improved the route.

The train experience has taken guests past exhibits including the otter exhibit and the South and North American exhibit. With the new improvements, the train will now take passengers to the bobcat and giraffe exhibits as well.

Train tickets cost three dollars per ride. The money brought in goes towards adding new exhibits and attractions at the zoo.

Current renovations are also being done to provide the animals with more naturalistic habitats instead of cages. The Potawatomi Zoo officials say that their top priority is animal welfare.

The zoos attendance increased by nearly 100,000 people last year, according to ABC 57 News. Josh Sisk, Potawatomi Zoo Executive Director, stated that with more visitors, the zoo needed to focus more on amenities. New exhibits are also planned to be added as well.

The zoo expects to present a new lion exhibit by the end of 2022. They hope to add tigers and black bears in the near future as well.
