TAMPA, Fla. - Get ready to kick your summer off with a splash!

ZooTampa at Lowry Park has opened its brand-new family water adventure, Roaring Springs.

The water ride allows guests of all ages to discover a hidden part of Florida full of unexpected adventure and thrills.

Explorers will board a boat and gently drift along a crystal-clear spring and then suddenly feel a rush of adrenaline as they experience a 3-story splashdown.

Situated within the first phase of the Florida realm expansion, the Roaring Springs area combines old Florida charm with a nod to the original Florida way of life.

After a recent rebranding, ZooTampa will open its most thrilling expansion to date on Saturday, June 9.
