  • Fantastic zoo! So many different options, events and animals! They keep it nice and clean and the animals seem content enough. If you go on a regular day I definitely suggest you spend the extra money on the train! It's a blast for the family and you get a nice rest after walking around the giant place. That being said, definitely give yourself enough time to make it through and you won't regret it!
  • We have a yearly membership and the changes that have been made with the awesome Lost Kingdom and other improvements have made the zoo more entertaining. Of course we all love the animals but the types of animals they now have added and the way they are added, makes it easier to see the animals and so fun to watch! It's still easily accessible with the different paths and access for the handicapped. Love the zoo!
  • I've never seen such happy animals... the keepers genuinely care and are very helpful. I don't think I've ever been to a zoo this clean either... smaller than some of the other places I've been, but being so personable definitely made up for it. One of my favorite places!
  • We always have a great time! Lots of animals and my son loves the petting zoo. I really love that you can bring in your own food and drinks. Almost all the animals are visible all the time, which is really nice so you can actually see the animals you came to see.
  • Half the exhibits seemed empty or animals sleeping in hard to see places. It seemed every time we got the kids excited about an upcoming creature, it wasn’t there. Very disappointed. Food very overpriced, but tickets are good price. What was more disturbing was the number of “design flaws” that my rambunctious 2 year old was able to find. A few times, with little effort, he could have easily ended up in the exhibits, or down in the water, or on the tracks. If you have a rowdy little one, might as well keep them strapped in the whole time for safety. OR, better yet, don’t waste your money. Never again.
