  • This is a great place. We bought our adult son a year membership for Christmas so he could take his family here when ever he wanted. We bought ouselves one too so we could bring out of town guests here. When everything is finished it will be so interesting. Our 3 year old granddaughter loves this place.
  • We got there late in the day, a little over an hour before they closed. They gave us a discounted admission, which was awesome because the price was a little expensive for a family of six otherwise. Hands down our favorite part was feeding the Lorakeets nectar. There were birds everywhere (and poop too!)! The small "zoo" area was cute and the inside of the actual museum was nice but not as large as I had thought. The most fun was had in the outside parts. After closing, we were still able to see the Sundial bridge, which was stunning that time of day. We stopped here on our way somewhere else and I'm so glad we did. Even with the short time, I feel like we still saw everything. Highly recommend, especially for families with a range of kids (mine are 9,7,5 and 2) as there was something for everyone.
  • I wish they had better hours. We would visit more if they opened earlier and closed later. It's a great park and wonderful experience. Lack of consistent WiFi is bothersome too.
  • Great place to hike! Next time I will try fishing, looked like a great place to catch trout.
  • I have brought my kids here and my nieces and nephews over the last 8 years. We always have a great time and enjoy the shows and feeding the birds. The water park is great if you're local and can bring your kids often during the summer.
