Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is a zoo in Powell, Ohio, USA. Prior to 2006, it was known as Wyandot Lake.


The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium purchased adjacent Wyandot Lake property in 2006 from Six Flags. During 2007, the former Wyandot Lake area was closed during a reconstruction and reconfiguration project. The Wyandot Lake property was divided into two parts - the water park, Zoombezi Bay, which has its own gate/admission and the former amusement rides became a new section of the zoo called Jungle Jack's Landing. The dates and statuses displayed here represent those of Wyandot Lake, not the zoo, which opened in 1927.
