      How many zoo monorails are there?

      Although I like to walk too (to photograph), I think monorails are lots of fun. Does anyone have a list of every U.S. zoo or wildlife park that has a monorail? I know two I have been on before no longer exist: Busch Gardens (Florida) and San Diego Wild Animal Park.

      Here are the ones I know of:

      Dallas Zoo
      Bronx Zoo
      Minnesota Zoo
      Miami Metrozoo

      Philadelphia Zoo and Miami Seaquarium used to have one too.

      Toronto had one--abandoned it several years ago.

      That's kind of sad. All of these defunct monorails. They must be a beast to upkeep.

      Yes indeed, the monorails (at least our in Dallas) are a bear to maintain, but we have a great maintenance crew for them so they are usually in working order.

      The monorail in Miami always seems to be in working order

      Toronto learned the hard way about upkeep (twice!)
