“Don't waste money on the train”
Review of Abilene Zoo

Abilene Zoo
Ranked #3 of 37 things to do in Abilene
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Don't waste money on the train, they just run it when they feel like it. They left an entire crowd just standing there while the driver just talked to his buddies for 30 min.

Animals are healthy. The Giraffes were very playful. Just a little over an hour and you've seen it all.

I took an eight year old great niece and a five year old great nephew and they both had fun. The zoo was small enought for me to sit in a central bench and keep my eye on them. I have mobility problems and this is an easy solution.

We go to the zoo about twice a month, we love it! Of course my 3 year old has to ride the train first, and he looooves to feed the giraffes. I am from Houston, and they have an incredible zoo, but the benefit of a small zoo is that you can get close to all the animals and it is not overwhelming (in size). We bought a membership which paid for itself in less than a month, and now we only pay for train rides ($2 per) and feeding the giraffe ($1). The membership also gets you great deals at zoos all over the country. For example, when we go to the Houston zoo, we get in for free (usually $13 per person)!!! Especially with young kids this is a must do!
