Very nice place for the whole family

The Zoo is not as big as The Bronx Zoo or Columbus Zoo but has a good variety of animals and great activities for everyone. They are friendly and the place is very clean.

The Good Zoo is just that. Good fun, good attractions, good staff and a good time. We enjoy seeing how much fun the children have looking at all of the different animals. Great bang for your buck, and reasonably located.

It is very nice and kid and adult friendly. We enjoyed the walk around the zoo and the gift shop was full of great gifts that children of all ages would love. The lights and music was great as well as the laser light show.

This zoo is a perfect circle for a young family with grandparents- It is a short loop and has just enough animals for the little ones and a little park for the kids. The older kids enjoyed it but they got bored fast.

Came to see the laser light show, which was awesome and the Christmas lights. Walked around the zoo, very nice zoo. Smaller then most zoos, but still very nice.

Small zoo but a fun stop while waiting for the lights and something to do to make the trip more worthwhile.

We came with a group. We watched a great lazer show and then toured the displays. We did not get there in time to tour the zoo as the animals go to sleep at 4 pm. The educational center was nice and the light show on the patio began at 5 pm. Several of us enjoyed shopping in the gift... More

I was actually surprised that this was set up like a regular zoo and not like an animal park. My visit occurred in mid November and I was slightly put off by what I was charged to go through this facility when most of the animals were not on display but considering the admission price also covered the laser shows...

A small little zoo with a big emphasis on family fun. The kids loved the education and activity areas. We had a blast on the train as well. We got up close to the Zebras

We went to visit. It is very nice but it opened late and there was probably two dozen people waiting to get in. The staff were very friendly but we all were getting ready to leave.
