It is a little expensive for what it is, but for a largely outdoor attraction, it's comfortable considering how much shady foliage they have, how many small arenas they have for shows and events, and the number of friendly staff members they have to take care of guests and the resident animals. Other than the beautiful macaws and parrots that you'd expect (and they have a huge variety), they also have a cassowary (very rare in zoos and theme parks), an Andean condor, a Sarus Crane, and a small pond with a gorgeous flock of flamingos. They have a small petting "farm" with goats and two zebu, and enclosure to pet small kangaroos (joeys, I guess - not full grown red kangaroos) if you pay $5 extra entrance fee. Not sure that's worth it if you're expecting playful, happy-to-see-you kangaroos because they seemed too sleepy to move, but it was still fun. The park also seemed to have an accidental "Napoleon Dynamite" theme with a liger ("they're pretty much my favorite animal") and a llama ("Tina, come get your dinner!").
Probably the best thing was when my friend had his photo taken at the entrance, they put a large parrot (a macaw?) upside down in his arms, and it lay there, cradled, loving and trusting. Must be a well-cared for bunch of birds.
