“Everyone loved it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Very cute little zoo. Kids got to feed and pet many of the animals. Lots of up close encounters and good photo ops. Reasonable admission fee.

“Waste of time !!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

If you are going with a BIG group maybe but if you are going as a family they make you feel like you are a waste of their time !!! Save your money and go have ice cream with the kids !! They only do shows when they have big groups !! Wish we would have not wasted the time or the money :(

“75 minutes to see this zoo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

$8 senior citizen, $7 child, $10 adult.
we have one child, one sr citizen and 4 adults - almost $60, warm water to buy and 75 minutes... just wasn't worth it, but we saw our child smile a lot and he liked it. It just is not that big, but different variety of animals. Lots of monkeys here to see.

“The Lemur and Roo encounters”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

While small, the zoo offers Lemur and Kangaroo encounters which are nice. It certainly is interesting and fun to have the baby animals crawl in your laps and all around you. One word of caution, Lemurs over your head urinate often and also poo - on you. The kangaroo encounter was cool. Very rarely do we get an opportunity to pet and interact with baby roos. Our 6 year old granddaughter was thrilled and amazed to have that close contact with the animals.

“Small!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

I am not much of a zoo fan but the family wanted to go so I obliged them. The price doesn't seem bad until you realize that it takes less than an hour to see all of the exhibits. If you really want to visit a zoo it's not too bad but it is really small. The entrance/gift shop can get real crowded. The kids couldn't look at the gifts due to the overcrowding.
