I wasn’t expecting it to be awesome, but my kids and I loved it. Lots of animals we hadn’t seen, plenty of area to roam around, and flat enough and shady enough to keep the kids from whining.

We had a wonderful time with our 2 year old. The price is very affordable. The train ride was fun too. We would stop again if we're ever in the area!

$15.50 for adults, I believe age 13 on up. $12.50 for children. PLUS $12.00 for parking. For that price the entire zoo should be on display.
