The guide was awesome, the animals were great. Would recommend taking the full experience. The interaction with the animals was a great experience, you could not do all this in a regular zoo.

We came for the light display only on this trip. I enjoyed the different displays but they will need to build on what they already have for next year. The drive is half the entertainment.

Came in the evening to drive thru the lights. Kids liked them. Main attraction was Santa and his reindeer. The Santa was VERY good. The animal cages were a little stinky but we enjoyed it.
