Helped an associate celebrated her birthday n she wanted 2 do this attraction, it was fairly ok, but limited 2 travel. 1 thing I dont like when you pay that expensive door entrance, I think at least a few rides shud have been included

This has been one of my favorite zoos since its beginning. You can get very close to the animals and interact with Lories, giraffes, kangaroos and observe many animals very closely. There is something for everyone.

My visit was during the week, and there were many school children on field trip but not overwhelming. The cost is rather high, but go to their website and get a coupon discount. I was amazed by the openness of the zoo and aquarium. One...More

They do have wheelchairs available, however they do not look like they are in the best shape. All the paths are crushed gravel and that also makes if very difficult to push around a wheelchair for any length of time. If you... More

Yes, they have large cats. The display for the panther (I think it was a panther) is awesome. You can walk under it. Kinda different knowing it’s looking down on you as you walk under. Also that had tiger cubs there. A baby... More
