  • This place is fun the first and second time but after no renovation or updates for over a decade it is boring. I thought I'd give it another go since my zoo membership got my family in for free but with no special exhibit on and everything the same as before we left shortly after arrival.
  • Many of the exhibits were closed. Not much for the preschooler to do. The parachute ride is gone. And the screen quality of the movies was horrible. Needs improvements BIG time. We brought kids from 16 to 3 and we were done with everything within one hour.
  • Beautiful facility that is surprisingly interesting for both older children and adults because of hands-on exhibits. Younger children (under ~6?) might not understand the subject matter of many of the exhibits, but will still be entertained because of the hands-on nature. The parking situation is completely out of control. We had no interest in using the shuttle because it was bitter cold and we were formally dressed. After circling and circling, we finally found an open spot in front of the zoo entrance. The spots are so narrow that we had to let the passengers out before parking. There was only about 10 inches between cars. We have no idea how the people next to us were able to get into their cars and leave. We have an older car so we were OK with our doors getting banged up. My advice: Use lightrail to save yourself many headaches.
  • This is very educational. Went here back in the '70's, and took my daughters here when they were young. For anyone who wants to give an educational place a low rating, don't bother. It just means that your a gamer and can't enjoy the finer things in life.
  • I expected live trees in the forestry center, but they were all fake. I was also told you could go underground to see how the roots of the trees and plants grew; wrong. There was even a sign at the top of the stairs that said the same thing, the stairs went down to a ground with stuffed animals and that was it. Very disappointed.
