Wow! What a Great Zoo. It's not the biggest, but they pack a lot into the space they have. The way their exhibits are set up it allows you to get really close to the animals. Most Zoo's are terrified to let you get anywhere...More

If you have wee ones and not so wee ones, they will love this! It's very affordable, too! If you want to go more than a few days and live in the area, I suggest buying a family pass and a ride bracelet. Saves lots...More

This zoo has all sorts of awards and accolades, but it really does need work. Several times I found myself at a dead end with no animals and no outlets. Communication and signage would go along way. Some really great animals and exhibits, but paired...More
