We had a day to just look around. The zoo was a great idea to spend some time. It was very entertaining with lots of animals out and about. Excellent for a family with kids as well as adults.

Went with my family, plus disabled DAd. It was nice he could rent a scooter at a affordable price! We enjoyed our time here and felt it was worth the money. Recommended for people of all ages.
