  • This zoo is awesome! How many places can you actually feed the animals? This place you can!! The only downside was there are parts of the zoo you can only get to by train which the attendant advise us...  more »

  • Fabulous zoo! You can get so close to the animals. They let you feed a great deal of them including hand feeding the giraffes! I don't care how old you are, it's so cool to feed a giraffe! There's plenty to do for every age. The only negative thing that comes to mind is the food. Skip eating there of you can, it's not at all good with very little healthy options. I know the proceeds from the food go to the zoo, but it's really not good. Just make a donation to the zoo instead!
  • My children love the zoo! We had a membership last year but wanted to switch it up this year. Now the kids are begging for a membership for next year. The only thing I don't like about the zoo is how small the area for the gorillas is. It seems depressing. I know it's a small zoo but I feel like for as many as there are a larger space could be built. We especially love the nativity that they do every year! Looking forward to going again this year.
  • Seeing the place on Google Maps, I thought that I would be disappointed with the experience here. I was wrong, this is a fantastic zoo of surprising size. Decent prices. Great habitats for the animals and great detail done on the landscaping across the zoo. The Budgie house in particular is well done and entirely consist of rescued birds. They have a Safari Train ride, Giraffe feeding, and a SkyRide that are all great to go on. The Safari ride is geared more towards children, but still fun and shows you parts of the zoo otherwise inaccessible. The employees, particularly during the animal training or feeding times are great. Very knowledgeable about their particular animal and handle questions and entertainment well. Problem among the best training and feeding sessions that I've seen.
  • I have been going here for years and enjoy it every time. They are also always adding new areas and improving the experience. We get a season pass each year.
  • A great small zoo. Enjoyed all the baby animals. The zoo has a variety of monkeys. I enjoyed the fact that the kids can feed a variety of animals. Probably the most interactive giraffe exhibit I've seen. A wonderful place to spend a few hours. Admission price is reasonable.
