The ride takes passengers over the animals. It's the third most popular attraction at the zoo.
It came to a halt July 9 after one of the cars derailed because of hot weather and strong winds. More than two dozen riders were stranded in gondolas above lions and baboons.
Zoo spokeswoman Mary Dixon says that they hope to instead build an indoor theater that would spray mists or blow air on audiences.
