  • We love going here. We take our kids several times a year. The staff is always so nice and friendly. Our kids favorite part is the tram ride to "Africa". I love how many things there are for the kids to do besides just look at animals.
  • We had a great time at the zoo yesterday. We got there right at 9 on a Saturday and took the first tram to the African section of the zoo. It was fantastic and not crowded at all! We got back to the lower section around 11:30 and the crowds were quite a bit bigger, but still manageable. The only animals we didn't really get a good look at were the dingos and the snow leopard. They were snoozing in the sun. The male lion was up and about, and the cheetahs we're very playful, pouncing around and chasing each other. Really, all the animals seemed content and well cared for. It was well worth the trip for us and we'll definitely be back!
  • I have not been to this zoo but if is anything like the customer service I got through the phone from Shannon & Jennifer in the sourvine shop, then this zoo is awesome. I live in Tennessee but my 4yr old daughter lost her giraffe that her older sister bought from this zoo in the shop. The ladies in the shop helped me figure out which giraffe it was she had bought and then they shipped it to me to make my daughter happy again. Above & beyond customer service! I can not put into words how they helped make this 4yr old happy again! Just awesomeness!
  • I cant say enough of my love for this place! I love how it keeps expanding! Food is rather pricey and not that great. The animals are great. Seen the new lion addition and he was super lazy but it was warm today. Best part if it all was the new baby giraffe!!!! Feeding the giraffes is such a great experience. I recommend that if you travel here you must feed the giraffes! It took us about 5 hrs altogether but that was upon myself as i kind of had a not lookin and gawking moment and sprained my ankle. Petting zoo is fun for the little ones to get right involved with the some animals. Very friendly staff all over the place and a very clean zoo as well. Creates wonderful memories!!!
  • Great zoo! Took the family there last weekend and had a blast. Employees were knowledgeable and helpful and the variety of animals was nice. Enjoyed the newer trails. There is a lot of walking between attractions but it looks like future expansions will fill in most of the areas without much to see. Local affordable and fun.
