Our family, including a 5- and 3-yr-old, traipsed to and through the Wild Africa exhibit (thanks to the tram) in about 4 hrs. The line for Admission, though long, went fast, and friendly clerks provided maps. As others have said, 'No animal should have a...More

Amazing Zoo. Kids loved feeding the Giraffes and goats. It was hot but we still had fun! Recommend taking the safari trolly to Africa. It's a tough walk with wagons.
