Take a ride on the wild side! ScooterPals Fur-Wheelers are the best — and fuzziest — way to get around the Detroit Zoo. Whether you are riding around on the rhino or exploring with the lively leopard, these new electric scooters will make your Zoo visit even more memorable.

Hours and Reservations:
ScooterPals are available during regular Zoo hours. Visit us outside the Polk Penguin Conservation Center to rent a ScooterPal today!

ScooterPals are available on a first-come, first-served basis. ScooterPals may be returned to the Main Train Station near the Zoo entrance or the Africa Train Station at the back of the Zoo.

Pay as you go! ScooterPals require a $5 base rate + 35 cents per minute.

A $30 temporary credit pre-authorization will be placed on the card used for the rental. The temporary hold is the amount we authorize to ensure there are funds available to complete your purchase.
