We have lived near this zoo for about 35 years and I have been there only twice, both times for kid's field trips. We went with a school group today so we had the advantage of a hefty discount. I am not a big fan of zoos to start with. From the beginning then. Huge car park but the allotted spaces are so small and we had trouble upon leaving. Opening our doors to load the kids was difficult . In fact, I had to back out of the spot before my wife could open her door to get in.It is a very busy place but we were able to enter the zoo quickly. The information booth was not open during our visit. I thought it would be a good idea to be able to receive a printed map of the grounds showing where various animals are located. From what I can gather, at least half, if not more, of the animal population is nocturnal. So no chance of seeing a lot of what may be there. The train ride was fun and it is a nice attraction. A hint here - do not sit too close to the engine as the P.A. system can not be heard above the engine noise. Very limited food selection at the cafe, so much so that when we left the zoo we stopped down the road for lunch at a food mall. Prices are what you would expect at a tourist trap, meaning a day with kids, buying their lunch, train ride, and entry can be costly for a family. It was a so-so experience but at least the kids have an opportunity see some animals up close.
