This was my second time here and it was better than the first time but still there is potential for improvement. We spent about 2-3 hours there and it was good. Ample parking space, the food was okay, clean restrooms and friendly staff.

I remember there were a lot of indoor facilities. Though we've never been there in Winter, I can imagine it would be a nice trip in the winter to see the indoor displays and animals.
