The park is amazing altogether, the zoo is average is some respects. It seems like you do a lot of walking and not a lot of animals. Maybe the attractions are to far apart and the animals are scares. The children's park area was more of an attraction for the kiddos than the entire zoo. Not worth the money spent.
