  • Overpriced, but nice - 30$ would be okay, but 42-47$ is too much. You have even to pay for parking! Kids will be happy, for adults it's not bad but nothing special. The best is kangaroo pavilion where you can touch them - very relaxing. A lot of nice parrots everywhere. But some animals in the small cages looks unhappy. The staff is friendly and try to do best for customers. The bird show is nice, but the tiger show is really boring. But still it's better to go this place then not to go.
  • The park was neat and enjoyable but I regret paying extra for the sloth experience. We were told that for $30 more dollars (not including the admission price) we would be able to play with the sloths for half an hour. They made it sound like it would only be our group of two during our time slot but when we arrived, there were four other people there who had also paid extra for the sloths. All six of us split the 30minutes with going inside the sloth's very small enclosure. $30 basically got us 4 minutes each of getting a closer look at the sloth and we were able to feed him one piece of sweet potato each. We all just stood outside for another 30 minutes waiting for our turn. We couldn't hold him or and barely got to pet him. Very disappointed and wish that I hadn't paid the $60 for the group of two. The rest of the park was really neat though. We were able to feed parrots and pet kangaroos at no extra charge. The shows were fun and educational and there was so much to see. We went during a week day so it was not very crowded at all. I would recommend going here but not paying extra for the sloth exhibit. Just was not worth the money
  • The kids absolutely loved it! Not too big, shaded and best of all lots of animals and shows. They really enjoyed feeding the macaws. Pack a few sandwiches and drinks and it's a perfect place to spend the day with kids.
  • Beautiful foliage, location, and animals. The food offerings were abysmal and hard to reach. The Coca Cola sponsorship is annoying and in your face. The beverage offerings completely miss the mark. They should have multiple vendors with frosty plastic mugs of iced lemonade or slushee. I'm still scratching my head why we found one...one... shaved ice vendor at the very furthest point from the entrance. It was a really warm day and people were looking for anything... though certainly not Coca Cola... to drink. It was really odd.
  • This is the best zoo I've ever been to. The animal interactions are wonderful. You can pet all sorts of birds, goats, and kangaroos. There is even a giant friendly iguana. I had a blast.
