It pains me to see animals in captivity - But these fantastic creatures have wide open space and cared for. I love to feel one with nature and I love my camera - This is not a bad place to pass the day

An impressively large zoo. The enclosures were large and the animals appeared to be healthy. There were more than ample opportunities for refreshments, restrooms and information. We arrived early and had no issues with crowds.

We had a good time taking in the animals. They charge more than twice what the Oklahoma Zoo does, and we have a really nice zoo here. We upgraded an adult and child ticket for rides, etc, but that turned out to be a waste...More

Review of: Zoo Lights Miami

As annual members the zoo is a great family visit. Plan on spending almost a full day. They have bikes and a outdoor restaurant. Prices are reasonable, and drink plenty of water.
