Cool Zoo at Audubon Zoo is a great option if you want to cool the family off this weekend. The Cool Zoo has fun for everyone including a 750-foot lazy river, a huge alligator water slide, spider monkey soakers, water-spitting snakes, and more splash-worthy activities. You can also check out the Zoo while you're there and make an entire day of it.
