More About Amazing Arachnids

This summer, discover the marvels of eight-legged critters at Brookfield Zoo's new temporary exhibit-Amazing Arachnid-that will explore human-arachnid cultural connections. Guests will have the opportunity to get up close to 100 live arachnids displayed in three themed areas that highlight their unique characteristics and importance in several genres, including medical research, music, literature, film, conservation, folklore, and mythology. Special Zoo Chats and hands-on interactives and opportunities for guests of all ages such as weaving a spider web, will enhance the experience.

Another component of Amazing Arachnids connects guests to the stories and strengths of 16 endangered species, including spiders, which can be seen at Brookfield Zoo. Giant colorful spinning wheels highlight 48 missions or tasks that link guests with one of the animals in a gigantic maze. After spinning the wheel, zoogoers are then challenged to move through the immersive attraction that introduces themes of species survival and protection through play-and-learn interactives like a climb-on spider web, jungle vines, swinging bars, and a falcon monorail zip slide. Youngsters and families can play over and over again with a new adventure each time, all the while lending more and more meaning to their subsequent journey around the zoo meeting the animals with which they now have a personal connection. The cost for Amazing Arachnids is $5 for adults and $3 for children 3-11 and seniors 65 and over.
