I would say that they are every bit as friendly as Disney and the park is kept clean and neat. My experience with the waitstaff in a couple of the places was very good. The shows I attended were very personal - they were all shows that an adult would enjoy, I did not attend anything geared toward children. My only complaint is that is some cases you are so far away from the animals that you can't see them very well.
