Phoenix does have a small amusement park, "Castles N Coasters".

It's nothing great, but it's something.

Does Orlando have a zoo aside from Disney's Animal Kingdom?

Orlando has Sea World......and the Central Florida Zoo is in Sanford, not so far away.

Richmond Va has a zoo, but it's over 20 miles away from dowmtown, and only accessible by car.
