To celebrate 90 years of fun, the zoo installed a 130-foot Ferris wheel. The view of the zoo from up there is breathtaking.

Another cause for celebration is the return of the Brookfield Zoo dolphins. The building that houses the dolphins underwent extensive renovations, requiring the animals to be moved to the Minnesota Zoo.

The zoo constructed a new aviary that will be home to two sandhill cranes and a dozen endangered prairie chickens.
