“A great family visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Enjoyed the zoo. Seemed to have quite a few areas under construction. Kids LOVED the pet the stingray exhibit. Although the zoo is technically free, we purchased for $10 per person the carosel ride, children's zoo (not all that great), train ride, stingray and 4-D movie. Well worth it.

“Great family fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Free zoo! Navigating a zoo this large was surprisingly easier than it appeared. Easy access to view animals, penguins were a highlight to grandchildren. Only negative was a couple of large animals were not out. $15.00 to park was a great bargain.

“Absolutely the best. and free!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

This zoo is absolutely the best zoo I have ever been to. It's free, just as zoos should be. The sea lion exhibit (used to be and will be reopened this month!) and penguin exhibits are prime. I live in St. Louis but I still make it a point to go to the zoo as often as I can. Going to St. Louis and missing the zoo would be such a pity. Definitely a must see!
