I can't believe this place is free - I've spent $15 on other zoo's that didn't hold a candle to this place. Fantastic exhibits, animals well taken care of, and staff is very attentive.

Yes, contact them and you can reserve a pavilion. If you have a particular one in mind, call sooner rather than later as my understanding is they fill quickly in season.
