  • Went here as a guest on a work picnic function... really a nice place for children and families.... probably great for Tourists too, since I do find that tourists expect to pay a little bit more for things l, on Vacation... Overall a really nice place. All the staff were friendly, really nice older gentleman walking around made it apparent he loved what he does, working there. The layout of the animals around you, makes it unique.... I don't want to spoil anything... it's worth a visit.
  • I went on a Thursday back in September, and i must say i had such an awesome experience. From the moment i walked in i was greeted with kindness. The shows were great and being able to pet the animals were awesome. Thank you all for the great experience.
  • Back in a day we used to go to the old location smaller and super adorable. I'm getting used to this one. It doesn't have a feel of the big zoo that's I why I love it! The birds are really gorgeous. A fun place to spend a day with family!
  • Its nice overall with amazing animals and shows for the kids to learn about the different kinds of animals. But the admission of price is very expensive. I paid $48.00 for one ticket. And the vending machines are purely ridiculous highly priced. A Powerade or soda cost $4.00 freaking dollars.😡😡 Food prices suck big time! By the way parking is $10.00.
  • Very strange place. Extremely expensive tickets and, as result, just few people in a park. Dirty, scary and not friendly at all. Many cages and enclosures without birds or animals. Everything for extra price. Dirty restrooms. All cafe and restaurants was closed during working hours. And do not forget to bring your water or you pay 4 dollars per can inside this captivity!
