“Great Time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

I recently visited the Zoo with my kids and had a great experience, and admission being half price was another a perk! The staff were very friendly and able to answer all of our questions. The animals were very interesting and had beautiful cages. The zoo was a bit smaller than I had initially expected it to be, but there were many animals on display, my kids’ favourite was a large crocodile! Overall, we had a great experience and will definitely be back this summer to see the dinosaurs!

“too much mula”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

too expensive, alot of cool reptiles though! 20 bucks for an adult is too much for what you get... not enough room in the building for the amount of people who go

“Interesting Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

This is a wonderful place for kids. The staff are patient and well informed. It's great that kids can actually interact with some of the reptiles. They have a good variety of snakes and other critters and it doesn't break the bank to spend a few hours there.
