It’s a nice size zoo that only has north American animals. It’s a nice day out with young kids. There are some hills to walk but the polar bears are awesome! They have a section for reptiles that you walk through a little building and...More

For animals housed in an amusement park-reasonable and interesting for some. I moved to upstate PA and now I get to see a lot of these animals in my yard-awesome.

Small. Antiquated. Outdated. Uninspired. I feel sorry for the animals. This space could be better used.

Most people do the zoo the same day as the park because it's included with admission. It's a small zoo that takes an hour or so to complete.
