Wait until you see all the exciting new things coming to the Wild Animal Park in Chittenango.

Disney Themed Mayan Ruins

Construction is underway on a new South American walk-through that will resemble Disney-themed ancient Mayan ruins. New species like giant anteaters and king vultures will share the exhibit.

Park owner Jeff Taylor says it’s all part of a multi-million dollar reinvestment plan at the Wild.

"We are continuing to enhance the animal exhibits and customer experience."

Underwater Viewing Exhibit

But wait, there's more. The Jaguars are being moved into a new exhibit that will feature a pool with underwater viewing so guests can see them swim. "This cat species likes water," said Taylor. A newly renovated gator exhibit will also be connected.

There are also plans for a new primate and parrot enclosure.

"Our exhibit design and construction crew are really taking it to a different level with this project. It’s like Disney style theming."
