This was a wonderful activity to do with your family and friends. The staff were friendly and helpful (exept one lady who sold soft prezels). There were tons of animals to see exept a few that had empty cages. I went on a thursday and there were hundreds of misbehaved kids who were throwing things at the peacocks and running... More

Zoo was just ok! It's aging compared to years ago. I didn't like the fact that once you paid to get in you had to pay again to see the shows, etc. Zoo was kept clean, easy walking and doesn't take too long.

A fun time was had by all during our recent visit. We visit this zoo at least once a year and we were very impressed with the sting ray exhibit this year. Our 8 year old had a blast touching the rays. We were sad to learn that both of the cheetahs had passed since our last visit (they are... More

The layout was great, the price was good, the animal displays were wonderful (loved that may were't "caged" up), loved that many of the walking paths were shaded, liked the foot massage chairs everywhere.

Been to many zoos around the world and was very disapointed here. Firstly there is a $12 parking fee plus your entrance fees... Once in the park most attractions have an extra charge. I.e the climbing wallnis $10 for 30 mins, zip line is $10, gondolas $3.00. This is okay as the animals are free or so you think until... More

Just another great family trip to a great zoo....LOVE the Bears and Monkeys:) Weather was perfect. We also took the ride on zoo tour. You can learn a lot on this little 25 min tour and it is inexpensive but our tour guide was not the nicest and it was quite bumpy/jerky.

We usually always go to the zoo if where we are visiting has one. We have been to this one before and now again. Was a beautiful cool day for July so the animals were moving around instead of just sleeping because of the heat. It's a great zoo and well worth the visit. I especially enjoyed the hyena's, can't...
