  • I love this place so much!!! I've been going here ever since I was a year old and it never gets old. It's a great place to take the family for a day and hang outπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ I would definitely recommend going here!!
  • The displays were really nice and it was fun to see animals that either were native to NY or still live in NY. We were a little bummed that the bear and wolverine weren't out, but it may just be a seasonal thing. On that note come on the weekend in the winter. The animals are much more active in the winter than in the heat of the summer.
  • Don't plan on it taking an entire day. We got there at 2:00p.m., and found ourselves back to the entrance at 2:55. Would have been sooner but the wolves kept us entertained for 10 minutes. Animals were taken care...$30 for a family of 4 they should be...
  • Wonderful zoo with quite a display of animals. They all seem to be well taken care of and have plenty of space.
  • Had a great time with my girlfriend and her 4 year old daughter. They have a pretty good assortment of animals. The bears were very active and we got to see them up close and personal when the keeper fed them peanuts. More than worth the entry fee. Avoid the gift shop though.
