Lines for eeeeeeeeeeverything. Took 25 minutes for 4 hot dogs with 3 people in front of me. No napkins and the hot dogs were undercooked. Run by absolute morons.

My husband had not been here since 1971, it was mine and our two teens first time here. There was a lot to see and do. I would recommend the driving tour not taking your own vehicle through the park. We went on the buses...More

It was nice to have a variety of foods from which to chose, keeping everybody happy. The interior of the restaurant was very noisy, so I would recommend trying to find a quieter table outside if possible.

It was almost as expensive as the toronto zoo and not nearly as nice. It smelled bad, there was fewer variety of animals and everything just felt dirty. I wouldn't bother going here again

Nice place to visit and see animal roaming around freely. FYI...Take your own food. Way over priced. Another FYI...if you're going with kids. Take swim stuff. Great water area

Took our granddaughters for the day and had a great time. We were told to go early in the morning as the animals are out and about. We went on the bus as then the baboons don't wreck your car. The bus was very comfortable...More

Yes they have lots of parking, I would go early just in case they want you in a specific area and you can park close to exit, to make it easier to pull out at the end of your day.
