We didn’t do the Amusement Park side of things as it seemed more geared towards little kids. The zoo was nice. The layout was really nice and it was like one big circle. You... read more

Love all the animals. Interactive time with the goats is always a highlight. Very relaxing. Good value for the money. Food is reasonable.

The Zoo was very nice and clean. The granddaughters ages 2 & 4 loved it and the Butterfly Kingdom was a huge hit with them. Plenty of food choices and the prices are reasonable. They have salads and wraps as well so you can eat healthy if you choose to. The Amusement park if a bit pricey for the younger... More

A great day shared with the nephews 5, 10 and 11. We arrived about 10:30 on an overcast day which made it not to hot. There were sprinkles light rain but we were prepared. Didn't leave til after the fireworks which we watched from the ferris wheel. Nice being able to go back and forth to car. Had a picnic... More

Get there early as the parking lot fills up fast. I arrived a hour after opening and the parking lot was full of cars. The price was very reasonable I rank this as another sad zoo. This is based on my experiencing other zoos including zoos in - Germany. Washington, DC. Bronx Zoo. Utah. Portand, Oregon. Children would enjoy it.

This place is a great park to take the family. There is so much to see and do. The animals are fun to see and the amusement park part is nostalgic. The food stands are awesome with fried dough as big as a beach ball!! Also Short Sands beach is just a walk up the street.

We arrived early and there were probably 50 cars parked.We purchased bracelets for the animal park only. Our twins are almost 3 so this was a new experience for them. We used bug spray and brought water. Those are the 2 items I would strongly advise bringing. During our purchase we also exchanged 10 dollars for quarters as the food... More

Recommended for families with younger children. The zoo is fairly small, but the paddle boats were a nice touch. The amusement park is geared for younger children, but my 3-year old really enjoyed it. The prices were quite fair as well.

My family visited York's Wild Animal Kingdom, and enjoyed the animals very much. We are always happy to see the improvements in some of the enclosures, and to see that the animals look well cared for. We were, however disappointed to notice that a few favorites were no longer there. The bears were not there, the "black leopard" and a... More

Been to dozens of zoos around the globe and this is an embarrassment for a small zoo. - Poor markings off main highway. Not one sign says TURN LEFT immediately on to 1 off the 95. - If driving on the 95, this is smack dab in the middle of $7 of tolls over a 30 mile stretch. - Evidently... More
