Rejoice! The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo's Australian Adventure reopens today! In addition to all the live animals — including koalas, wallabies, and emus — the vast play area features an interactive ranch house with lifelike animatronic animals and hands-on displays. Also on board: a 55-foot baobab tree that kids can climb if they wanna play koala. Alas, other Australian favorites — such as Russell Crowe — won't be there. But we bet the kangaroos could be just as deadly with a telephone.
Starts: April 1. Daily, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., 2006
