  • Around the Zoo for ingenuity is required. It is useful to seniors make position of the elevator ago, pretty high/low difference. In the pond at the bottom of the boat is fun. CARP bait is a sight to see was overkill.

  • Reasonably priced, but lacks a signature activity. Appears it once had other animals, maybe even pandas. But a few big cats, token chimps, and reptiles. The elephants didn't look so healthy. The giraf...  more »

  • Pretty decent sized zoo with a good variety of animals. Got to see the hippos out of the water which rarely ever happens. Been here a hand full of times and each time there was always something new to see and experience. It does get hot and muggy in the summer so bring an umbrella, dress comfortable, and prepare to sweat A LOT!! Many great photo spots too!!
  • It’s a beautiful zoo, more so if you have kids because it’s kinda like a kids amusement park. The reason I rate it so low is the animals. I don’t know if they’re rescues or badly cared for(or not cared for) but the animals were hungry and in bad shape. The large birds are missing lots of feathers and they’re almost bald, the elephants looked hairy and dirty.(im not sure if that’s natural and normal though) the only ones that looked happy were the goats who had lots of space to roam and climb. The place is cheap and I feel like they should raise their prices to help their animals and equipment because the whole place is starting to eat run down.
  • One of the less crowd I ever been to a zoo. Most animals on small cages or contsinersrrseem very lonely. Only high point of the zoo is the petting zoo whereby can feed rabbits, sheeps, guinea pigs, chicks turtle etc very exciting!
  • Great size zoo with plenty of animals to see. Also they have a science museum as and you are able go fishing as well.
  • Excellent place of family trip with young kids or toddlers. Friendly environment for strollers, like elevators, outdoor escalators, gentle slopes
