Although we visited this zoo last year we have never been disappointed when we plan a trip to the zoo. We don't go every year, but make it a trip every couple of years. Definitely a good place to go, especially with kids/teens.

Stingray beach is a must, you get to pet stingrays. The rain forest is amazing, and the aquarium is one of the best. I take my family all the time. We have a season pass and we go year round. They are always improving and making things interesting, both for kids and adults. The Imax shows are educational and my... More

I can remember visiting the Lied Jungle in the 90s, then the Scott Aquarium in the 2000s, and this visit was just as amazing. The Dessert Dome and Creatures of the Night are amazing and are unlike anything I've seen before in a zoo. There is currently construction for the African Savannah, which looks awesome. We went on a Monday... More

This was a very nice place to go spend time wandering. Plan to spend a day there as we quickly ran out of time. They have camping available so consider taking Boy Scouts, girls scouts or church groups. The grounds are nicely kept up and the animals all look like they are well cared for. True enjoyment

We really enjoy visiting this zoo. We are very excited to come back when the African section is finished. We like how most of the animals have a lot of space to roam. The desert dome is really interesting. Excellent variety of animals. Nice place to visit.

Zoos can be difficult to review. As they are more subjective that most other attractions. I truly enjoy this zoo because of it's size and specialized exhibits. I've been to a great many zoos and this is by far my favorite. I especially like the jungle house and the desert house.

To start off... free parking! So be prepared to circle like vultures on a busy day... but free is good. Reasonable price... for the number of exhibits this is a very good value. We sent over three hours there for about the same price of a movie ticket. We saw a lot of families with coolers and backpacks. Nice that... More
