Quite a few other reviewers complained about the dirt paths everywhere, but in truth I would rather they did that instead of paving everything over with concrete. It felt more like the animals were in a more natural surrounding, especially the exhibits for the gazelles, antelopes, oryx, zebras, and african wild dogs. Yes, the price is a bit steep, and yes, they charge you for extras like the train and boat rides. Of course, the grandkids wanted to do it all! The train ride is particularly fascinating because they route it through a gated enclosure out into an artificial "savannah" where you rumble past free-to-roam gazelles, ostriches, waterbucks, and antelopes. The aquarium was pretty good for being out in the middle of the desert. The kids were fascinated with the "touchy-feely" tanks of sea urchins and rays. It was a fun afternoon for all of us, but I'd look for coupons if we go again.
