But a little pricey. For two seniors, one that’s 8 and one that’s 3 it was $64. That included admission, parking, train ride, carousel ride for two and feeding the giraffes. It was a fun day though. We went on a day when there was...More

It was 100 degrees the day we went, but we still enjoyed it. Fathers got in free on Father's Day. Our two boys (ages 3 & 5) really enjoyed the train ride, koi pond and petting zoo. They also have a nice, shaded playground area....More

Lots of improvements. Great interactive events for the kids to feed the animals (worth the modest added cost). We’ll be back!
