I thought the zoo was extremely overpriced for what they had to offer. The zoo is not very big and the price of $19 per adult is definitely not worth it. If you’re a resident or military then the price is reasonable but as a...More

I did not see any so my suggestion would be no, only service dogs. If you want to go give them a call when you are there they will be only too pleased to answer the question better than I can for you.

It is set up by the hour so you deposit enough money to cover the time you estimate your visit.. it is paid into a machine near the entrance. You can always exit to add money and re-enter.
