We are definitely renewing our annual passes for next year. My daughter absolutely loves the zoo, and there's always something new. It's never a dull moment with the animals. The food at the Oasis is pretty good...salads and sandwiches are yummy and fresh. If you go in the summer months, pack sunscreen and lots of water. It will be hot!... More

We saw animals we had never seen before. But it's better to go early. When the sun is shining, the animals hide. Try to buy some bottles water before you start this journey. It's a long walk, wear comfortable shoes

We took our 3 year-old girl to the zoo and we really enjoyed our visit! There are lots of animals and the grounds of the zoo are very nice and well kept. Our daughter especially enjoyed feeding the girafes! It's an amazing experience for the little ones. We visited on a very hot and humid day, and realized a bit... More

I love this zoo. It has so many animals in one place. Went in August but did not rent a bike this time, big mistake. It was so hot. The bike makes it so much easier when it's hot. We took the mono rail , horrible, that is a total disaster, they put a sticker advertising the zoo that blocks... More

I can see why it is listed in the top 10 of zoos for the United States. Can see everything in 1 day if you rush through the exhibits. There is a lot to see and read. I personally could spend an entire day in the Aviary, which is absolutely amazing. I would check out groupon for any deals for... More

My son and I are animal lovers and we were very happy to see how the animals were cared for at this zoo. The animals are happy. Big zoo. Wear comfortable shoes. The map needs improvement. It was of little to no assistance.

We went late in the day. They had a lot of animals that could be seen up close. I would recommend going earlier in the day. We noticed many of the animals were but into their secluded areas earlier then the stated closing time. Even with that we got to see a large portion of the park.
