“FUN FOR ALL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

If you want to go at a more leisurely pace the zoo can take all day or if you have busy kids it can take half a day!!! Lots of animals and love the fact you can walk through some of the enclosures for a more personal view. Feeing times are a must as you get to learn about the animals and see them a bit more active than normal. Totally recommend for all ages!!!

“Great as always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

Enjoyed as always, the highlights were the feeding times and the more interactive parts where the animals got excited, opposed to just lying down and sleeping or hiding :-)
