The zoo is small. Some of the enclosures seem too small for several larger species: tiger, lions, kangaroos. If you have not had the opportunity to visit one of the great zoos: San Diego, Miami, Bronx... this is a kid friendly simple one. The amusement...More

Visited again with children, age range 9-15. Not the zoo/park I remember from when my 2 older children were young (2000). Some of the zoo attractions were a bit dirty/unkempt and definitely a decrease in the variety of animals. The carnival rides look a bit...More

I brought my children here many years ago and returned with my granddaughter. It remains the same if not bigger. The rides, fun houses, haunted house are the same. It's nice too see they haven't replaced those with video games! The zoo is well maintained...More

This little zoo is in poor repair and shabby condition. The zoo is certainly overpriced for it's offerings.
