It has been many years since I was last there ands the improvements to the facility was great. My favorite area was the big cats display and the desert dome. This was... More

The rain forest is truly a place to visit. You can view from balconies and then walk the rain forest at ground level. Actually walk through the rain forest. They outdid themselves in this presentation of the rain forest and their inhabitants. Then visit the desert dome. Another super site to view animals in their natural surroundings. You will need...

This is a fantastic zoo when it is not under so much construction. The areas that are open are top attractions that get you up close to the animals and creatures on display. The zoo is going through a major overhaul of certain areas and that makes it much less attractive. When these construction areas are completed this will be... More

We don't take advantage of this often enough. We love this zoo. They are always updating it with new exhibits to keep it fresh. We try to go at least once a year but don't always make it.

We will be back. Even though there was considerable construction there was plenty of great areas open to visit. Loved the aquarium and Gorilla Compound.

The best zoo by far! Loved the Gorilla Building and the new sting ray encounter where you can feed them, the kids have a blast here. They are building a new African Safari area which will be opened next Spring which will be amazing! What is here now is beyond compare!

For our family outing, I would say that it's tough to say what we liked the most...the kids like the petting zoo, the teens and up like the desert, aquarium, and rain forest. The only thing I don't like is the smell in the gorilla area! :)

As good as it gets. Their program continues to expand and they drive most of their fundraising money into new exhibits and making their zoo the best in the country. Top notch.
