  • This isn't the biggest or best zoo, but I've been going here for years and they have been continuing to make improvements year after year. My kids love the sky-tram and the train ride, reasonably pric...  read more »
  • Avoid going to this zoo. It is a for profit zoo that does not take care of the animals. It is expensive, 17 dollars plus extra for tram, carousel and sky ride. Extremely small "habitats" for the anima...  read more »
  • The zoo has a wide variety of primates, hoofed animals, birds & big cats. Many of the animals were in enclosures that didn't have much water and the water around the islands was not too clean. Had koi...  read more »
  • I had a great time. I took the grandkids and they had a fantastic time, even the 14 month old. There was so much to see and they give their animals so much more room to move then your typical Zoo. There was handicapped parking and accessibility throughout the park. The only downfall was at the little kids park. Shoes are to come off and you know its for the little kids. There should be a zoo employee on hand because teenagers were running all through it , with shoes on. They hit my grandaughter in the head and didn't leave until i said something. Other than that, it was great. Loved the misting fans throughout the zoo
  • My kids love everything about it. The birds, Bison, skyride, train, reptiles, junior explorer course, carousel, giraffes, penguins, and of course we al love the Miracle of Christmas! Thank you for a beautiful zoo!
  • Kids loved it, me too! Now they have zip lines! Haven't experienced yet. But love feeding giraffes and I'm am just amazed with the chimpanzees and monkeys. I could watch them all day long! Nice gift shop and snackstand.
  • The rides are a bit overpriced given their quality, but regardless I love this zoo! My kids love coming here, there is a nice variety of animals, and we always have a great time!
  • Wow the zoo was very very nice, kids and adults loved it! See plenty of animals, safari sky ride and train ride. Train ride showed ostrich and gazelle (and similar animals) in one small area of the park. Sky ride over most of the park to see the animals. Zip line from tree to tree, all over the park. People could feed the giraffe (see their tongue come out and lick the grass or food out of your hand). Monkeys sit, swing and entertain (one was talking, saying whoop whoop whoop over and over, that was funny, lol). Rhinos, tigers, bears, lion and more in areas where you could see them near and or far away. So many animals, snakes, etc...
