We visited on 9/10. The admission price was great. The "train" or whatever it's called was still down, which the girl at the ticket booth must not have known because she told us to take it lol. The zoo took us about 4 hours to get through, but we looked at everything! It was super hot and some of the poor animals were hidden in their cool spots, but we still caught glimpses. The aquarium isn't exactly what I envisioned, but it's not bad either. The best part was feeding the stingrays! If it's feeding time, you must try it! It's only $1 to pet them and another $1 to feed. I'll leave the experience for you to feel, just know it's so freakin cool! The bear came right up to the window for us! Well, actually, he was looking for food lol. We did get to see the hawks get fed, pretty neat too. My only thing is Why The Snake Exhibit?!?! Ewww!!!! But if your into them, there's some monsters for you! Not too much walking, just right. Follow your maps and signs and have a great time!
