The Journey to Zanzibar swinging boat ride at Jungle Jack's Landing.

Columbus Zoo
Jungle Jack's Landing at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, which used to be known as Wyandot Lake, is a small amusement park. It's meant more as an accompaniment to a day at the zoo or the adjacent water park than a standalone park. Among the highlights are the Sea Dragon junior wooden coaster and the Jungle River Falls log flume. The park also features a few thrill rides and kiddie rides.

The zoo also offers attractions, including a carousel, train, and boat rides.
