During your Central Park bike tours, you will be able to ride around the entire park, seeing the sites and learning about them. As one of the main attractions within the park, the Central Park Zoo is definitely worth a visit. In addition to taking the time to explore your favorite animal habitats, be sure to check out these areas.
If you have the time during Central Park bike tours, be sure to stop by the 4D Theater for an educational and fun film in a way that you have never experienced before. The theater is immersive, showing a 3D film along with sensory effects. Just remember that 4D films are geared for those who are at least 6 years old – although adults will also love the experience.
All of the animal exhibits at the Central Park Zoo are worth a visit, but you definitely don’t want to miss the Polar Circle. This is where you will find birds, harbor seals, puffins, and penguins.
Penguins are one of the most popular exhibits at the Central Park Zoo. To make your stop by their exhibit even more fun, time it during one of the feedings. At 10:30 and 2:30, the king penguins, chinstraps, and gentoos will all come out to get their fish.
Sea Lion Feedings
In addition to the penguin feedings, you should be sure to see the sea lion feedings. These sessions are every day at 11:30, 1:30, and 3:30. If you visit in the fall, you may notice they seem to eat a lot to build up their insulation for the winter. The feeding sessions also serve to train the sea lions, keeping their brains stimulated.
Tisch Children’s Zoo
If you go on Central Park bike tours with your kids, you should definitely stop by the Tisch Children’s Zoo. Your children will get the chance to get up close and personal with goats, sheep, and potbellied pigs, along with a cow and other animals. If you visit between 10 and 2, you can also feed the animals!
You should definitely do a Zoo Quest during your Central Park bike tours, especially if you have kids with you. These quests are available from 10:30 to 3:30 on specific days of the week. They teach you about enjoying the outdoors, conservation, and, of course, the animals. They are also completely free to participate in.
Of course, you should also take advantage of Central Park bike tours to slowly explore the rest of the zoo to see and learn more about the various animals in addition to seeing these specific attractions.
