I was fortunate enough to be able to come to your zoo this past Saturday, 10/18/2014. I was very disappointed. I noticed that one of your employees driving in one of the carts was smoking and noticed cigarette butts on the ground. Not too healthy for your animals I would think. I also notice that you don't have too many... More

Although the price is high as many say in their reviews, the value one gets from the hours of entertainment makes it worth it. They have a great selection of animals for all people. We go every other year when in the area, and the location continues to grow and improve. We were a bit setback by the staff this... More

I would recommend that for those who have the means and time to save up for the San Diego Zoo or San Diego Zoo Safari Park. We spent about $150.00 on our outing to this place for 2 adults and 2 children. That was using both Groupon and Living Social discounts and we did not eat a meal! Rides within... More

We visited this so called zoo, cost was $37.00 per person and it was a waste of money. All of the food areas were closed, all of the rides and animal feeding statins were closed and they still charged full price. More birds than animals, really should be classed as a bird sanctuary and not a zoo. The cages and... More

I truly enjoy going to the zoo whenever I get a chance and after recently moving to Arizona, I decide to check this place out. I went during the week and there was virtually nobody there which was nice. The zoo has quite a few birds but also does have a nice variety including a rare white tiger as well... More

We live very near this zoo. It looks smaller from the outside than it truely is. There is a lot to see at this zoo. The only downfall I would say it pricing. It is not cheap to get in and if you have a family it could get pricey. Also there is a little train and I think a... More

Our group of three adults and 10 month old went here on a Tuesday, using a groupon. It was very quiet, both from a crowd standpoint and an animal standpoint. Perhaps it was because it was low season, but there was a lot of maintenance and closures going on. The disappointing thing was none of these were mentioned on the... More

Let me clarify, it was by the Lorikeet aviary, which was really awesome. A few times a day visitors are allowed into the massive Lorikeet aviary, and given tiny cups of juice. You hold your arms out to your sides with the little juice cups in hand, and watch as the birds land on you and drink away. Lorikeet's are... More

I am a zoo fanatic and have visited dozens of zoos and recently published a book on zoos. Online reviews of this place seem to be towards the extreme - people either think it is the best zoo they have seen (which is absurd) or a complete dump with suffering animals that ought to be shut down (also absurd). The... More

My husband and I stopped here while on a weekend trip to Phoenix for Labor Day. We thought it would be fun and we found discount ticket on TravelZoo so we decided to try it. We immediately noticed the water log ride closed, not sure why. The little train ride was closed. Some exhibits are closed due to construction and... More
