Our adult children came to visit us over the Thanksgiving holiday. We were looking for things to do that were inside and this fit the bill. Luckily for us, the weather was beautiful so we were able to go outside and see the sights as well! This zoo is geared more for younger children, but we still enjoyed our visit... More

This is the place to go if you love a zoo but hate all the walking. It isn't huge but the animals are unique and easy to see. For an added fee the animal encounters are something you will never forget.

We expected it to be a small little thing, not many animals, ect but we couldn't be more wrong. There were real zoo animals, bears, ect. and the animals came right up to the window so we got a very close look

Fun little zoo right on the grounds. The trolley goes right by there and you can get off and on as you choose. A great option for families with kids or anyone who enjoys a zoo.

Animals you normally don't see at a zoo. Our grandson, who lives a half mile from the Columbus zoo and visits it often, didn't want to leave.

This was by far one of the best experiences for my kid/grandkid. It was awesome from the minute we stepped in the door. We walked around outside and visited all the animals, which were actually out the lively. There were a lot to see as well. Lots of different varieties. Then we visited the indoor section with the hands-on activities,... More

Not many animals outside because of the cold and the animated dinosaurs were pretty far from the main building. Having two youngsters made it a little rough and wife with bad knees and hip had a very hard time walking around the place. Would have been nice if they rented all of the golf carts they had parked there
