The Neil Anderson Canopy Tour

The Neil Anderson Canopy Tour is the newest experience at the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park. The tour takes guests on a treetop walk from the Adventure Park to the NEW Zoo, going through trees and even crossing over animal habitats. It’s a whole “new view” of the NEW Zoo!

Grand Opening Set

The Grand Opening for the Neil Anderson Canopy Tour is set for Saturday and Sunday, August 6th and 7th. Capital Credit Union is sponsoring admission during opening weekend for the first 500 children (under 16) to enjoy the canopy tour for free with a paid adult. Tickets for adults and seniors must be purchased online in advance to reserve your tour time. All child tickets for August 6th and 7th will be sold at the door. Guests can purchase tickets for future Canopy Tour dates right away.

The Neil Anderson Canopy Tour was made possible by the fundraising efforts of our supporting organization, the NEW Zoological Society. The experience includes over a dozen suspension bridges stretched between trees and posts, as well as several platforms that will feature educational graphics. The graphics will share stories about the history of the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park, as well as encourage guests to immerse themselves into the sights and sounds of the natural spaces around them.
