The area includes rides, a children's zoo, a gorilla compound and picnic facilities.
|Fairgoers may take their pick of five
amusement-park rides and race small gasoline-driven "go-karts" around a
300-foot track. In a zoo tent, children may feed tame animals. Nearby,
Gargantua II and M'Toto, said to be the oldest and largest gorillas in
captivity, are on view in a "jungle compound."
